Take a dive into the darker side of electro-pop with us. Manchester has given us some amazing talent over the years and you can now add CAii to that list. Her vocals soar over the track (quite literally with the lyrics) which has a dark and devious bassline at its core. This synth bassline is what hooked me and the catchy chorus is the kind of pop perfection you can find getting stuck in your head days later.
According to the press release ‘Back It Up’ “poignantly conveys Caii’s aptitude for creating electro-pop; it’s a single that reclaims control & sets concrete boundaries: resolute & indisputable.” While that might be true, for me it’s all about that rather simple combination of moody bassline and uplifting vocals complimenting each other throughout.
Verdict: Catchy dark electro-pop that’s going to get stuck in your head and have you coming back for more.
