Earlier this year, Sandman released his aspirational track “Beach House.” Sonically light hearted and enchanting, “Beach House” projected him into the new year and our speakers. Now, a few months down the line, he is back with an equally honest single titled, “Please!.”
Refreshing and summer-ready, Sandman brings heartbreak to the shore as he gives his last request to an ex-lover. Brightly toned and rhythmic chords are strummed throughout the song, making it hard not to love and replay. However, sobering lyrics accounted for, the track quickly turns into a hopeful yet heartbreaking tune.
Verse by verse, the singer dives into recurring deceptions he once experienced in a past relationship. Filled with false promises and malicious motives, Sandman is ready to break free from this vicious cycle and find peace. As he sings in a lofty and satisfying head voice, “Just take it and leave / forget everything you need from me / I’m begging you please / Just let me be free from you” he tries to escape the past — while simultaneously soothing our ears — and move onto the next chapter of his life.
Marking his second release of the year, “Please!” is a vulnerable and memorable addition to the ongoing roll-out to his upcoming EP, and his discography at large. Listen to the new track below:
