Bay Area pop singer-songwriter Drea Jeann unveils the music video for her latest single, “Come Back To Me.”
Falling under the spell of music when she was three-years-old, Drea grew up enveloped in jazz and musical theater, later succumbing to the magical charm of electronic music. A consummate, supple vocalist whose tones are under exquisite lilting control, she emphasizes the feel and flow of the music rather than methodical arrangement.
In her previous video, “Faithfully,” Drea revealed her dramatic prowess, playing the role of a soldier’s wife, awaiting the homecoming of her husband. “Come Back To Me” displays the full range of not only her nonpareil voice, but also her burgeoning onscreen charisma.
“Come Back To Me” opens on dark emerging colors, followed by the entry of Drea’s creamy impassioned voice, dripping with longing timbres. A measured thrumming rhythm infuses the tune with tumescent pressure, exuding washes of throbbing pulsations.
A low-slung piano provides tantalizing wisps of nuanced desire and sumptuous emotional commitment. Oozing synth colors quiver on subdued elusive textures, thick with misty energy and suppressed emotional hunger curling upward with palpable vitality.
Bathed in stormy feverish hues, the music’s aura seethes with complex, titanic voluptuous urges, bathing the harmonics in intimate imminence, as if ensconced in layers of sonic yearning.
Drea’s voice projects poignant ache, susceptibility, fervor, and tremulous resolve. It’s a voice both alluring and compelling, rife with enormous sensations.
“Throughout the madness, the darkness, the tragic I need you / Silence the pain, still I whisper your name and I need you.”
The video, directed by Ben Griffin, depicts two lovers immersed in deep waters, struggling amid surging undertows and fluctuations to get back to each other. Symbolic of perverse circumstances and vast obstacles, the visuals portray the vulnerability inherent in romantic relationships.
“Come Back To Me” exudes monumental emotions, full of visceral primal potency expressed through the redolent voice of Drea Jeann.
