It’s the season to cosy with the one you love - even if that person may just be yourself. And there’s no better way to prove it than with President Street’s autumnal anthem, ‘I Found Me’ - which has just debuted on the New Music Week Pop Chart at number 30, and shows no sign of slowing down any time soon.
The song is a beautifully written anthemic track which deals with the empowered feeling of being in a truly good relationship - one which leads to you feeling comfortable in your own skin for the first time. “I didn’t know I was looking for you / Until I found me,” sings Ruby in this defiantly confident chorus.
The release of ‘I Found Me’ comes following a busy year for this pop-fusion collective. Having already released a string of their high energy and melodically-driven singles, the outfit then took to the road for an unplugged tour of the UK, showcasing their softer, acoustic side.
Their time back in the studio in Australia following this tour has clearly paid off, though, as the fruits of their labour have already made a huge impact on the charts. The dynamic and energetic song makes use of a lazy, Americana-esque guitar riff, making the song unmistakably theirs from the very first note. The chorus borrows a drum groove inspired by drum ‘n’ bass tracks and the vocal line is pure pop. It’s not difficult to see why this duo has been labelled “pop fusion” - it’s impossible to fit in a box, something which may have been a risky decision to have made whilst writing the track. But the votes are in, and it’s certainly a risk which has paid off.
