Someone That Loves You

20 odd years ago I regularly tuned into the Radio 1 Evening Session hosted by Steve Lamaq and Jo Whiley - 2 enthusiastic music fans who easily transferred their knowledge and passion to the airwaves, subsequently turning me on to all kinds of music.

Lamaq is now on 6music’s drivetime slot and Jo Whiley has a few nights a week on Radio 2. I tend to listen to Jo’s show on the way to play 7-a-side football on a Wednesday night. It’s a late night kick-off at 9pm, so I sometimes leave the house with plenty of time to spare and take a leisurely drive over whilst listening to Jo’s show.

Last week she played this gem - Someone That Loves You by HONNE and Izzy Bizu. I fell for it immediately, the chorus was instant, the way the song flows, the feel, the vocals - all sublime.

Someone That Loves You is equally dreamy and euphoric, combining pop, soul and electro with ease - sounding modern, yet familiar - just perfect. The male and female voices combine superbly to tell a tale of love and lust with Izzy lifting things for the chorus.

Don’t touch me
Boy I want you
Not allowed to
You have someone that loves you
I’m waiting 
And I’m patient
I’m deluded
You have someone that loves you
