Not so few are the people who, at some point, tend to wish their exes back into their lives, with some even going as far as making a proactive attempt at reigniting the old flame. In his new song “Like I Do”, Irish singer-songwriter Moncrieff perfectly delves into that regretful scenario.
Dressed in a hard-hitting pop/rock instrumentation, and delivered within the singer’s soaring vocals, this piece paints a remorseful picture of the artist, who expounds: “…sometimes break up songs have a habit of being told with images and metaphors to help round off the edges and soften the blow a bit for the other person, but most of the time in real life it doesn’t work this way… in my experience and I’m sure in many others, when you break up, there’s tears, grit and angry words… there’s bitterness as well as care and love that hovers around and that’s what ‘Like I Do’ captures: real feelings, bad times.“
“Like I Do” is the second single of Moncrieff’s upcoming debut EP The Early Hurts. Watch the music video above.
