Emerging Wales-based artist Hemes has just released her debut single “Who Needs Love”. The track was produced by Grammy Award-nominated songwriter Daniel Evans, and is a smooth R&B song, infused with dark pop vibes from the singer and songwriter of Arabic descent.
Hemes has already unveiled a collaboration with Welsh duo Two of Us on the reggaeton dance track titled “Casual”, but this piece is her first solo release, with many more to come as we go into 2021.
Taken from her debut EP, the song “Who Needs Love” is really well-produced, with the music and rhythms perfectly matching her wonderful soft voice. Hemes’ honeyed vocals help bring emotion to the track, and make it hard not to connect with the singer while she opens up about a painful relationship.
The emerging singer-songwriter has been raised in the UK to both Arabic parents, which has influenced her love for music. Being surrounded by a mix of western and middle eastern music growing up, Hemes developed a taste for music and poetry lyrics. That results in her effective and emotional songwriting style, highlighted by the song production and Hemes’ dulcet tone.
