Elizabeth Hunter struts forward with blinding energy, loud and dynamic and alive.
Elizabeth Hunter's “Coming for You” is impressive in just how much it does right. There’s the instrumental, a Motown-influenced slammer with butter-smooth horns and luscious organ. There’s the vocal, a killer case of blue-eyed soul drawing heavily from Amy Winehouse’s days with Mark Ronson and suave harmonizing up the wazoo. Most importantly, though, Hunter struts forward with blinding energy, loud and dynamic and alive. It’ll truly be a shame if “Coming for You” doesn’t break through, since I haven’t heard a song that’s quite so sure to get people up and dancing in a while.
“‘Coming for You’ is an retro, upbeat, summer tune, with an "I Want You Back" type storyline,” says Hunter. “It's a familiar concept -- realizing the one you lost is the one you love, and fighting to get them back. It's a story so universal and visceral that it's been rewritten in every key and decade.”
