Why is Edith’s “I Kinda’ Like You” the Perfect Summer Song?
Why is “I Kinda’ Like You” is the perfect summer song? The answer is in the musicality. When you listen to the song, you feel the summer-like vibe with the instrumentation and vocals.
There isn’t much in the instrumentation, only a synthesizer that plays a few notes here and there, backing vocals, and synthesized drums. But, the lack of instrumentation doesn’t demerit the tune, it really makes it better. One reason why is that the lack of instrumentation actually makes the song feel more laidback and chilled. It isn’t a high-energic song nor a ballad, but the tempo is just right for “I Kinda’ Like You” to be a summer-like tune.
Another reason why there is a lack of instrumentation is the main focus in Edith’s vocals. These vocals are what keeps the song moving forward as the main vehicle. They have depth and range as well as a warm, vibrant tone. Whenever I listen to “I Kinda’ Like You”, I always think that Edith’s vocals are a lot of Ariana Grande: warm, vibrant, and smooth.
But, There’s Something Else!
I wrote this about a boy who thought any girl wasn’t enough for him, but the realised I am enough for myself, so I do not need his approval. Empower girls to feel in control of any situation.Edith
“I Kinda’ Like You” is not only a song for the summer, it is also an anthem to empower girls. If you take a look at the lyrics, you realize that it is a song that tells the listeners that “you are enough”. You don’t anyone’s approval. You are in full control of your life.
My Final Thoughts
Edith’s “I Kinda’ Like You” is the perfect summertime tune with it’s laid back and chilled vibe. But what really makes this song a must-listen is Edith’s vocals with its warm, vibrant, and rich. With the rich vocals, the chilled instrumentation, and inspiring lyrics, “I Kinda’ Like You” is a perfect song to fill your summer days with.

About the Artist: Edith
Edith started writing songs at the age of 10, when she thought there is no other way to express emotions. She quotes “I love writing, I love writing about my story and people listening to my music thinking, “Oh I relate to this”. We all go through different experience but on the end, feel the same emotions.”. Last year she released her debut self-titled EP along with doing some important gigs around London, such as Notting Hill Arts Club.
Edith takes inspiration from many artists, such as Lany, The Weekend and 80s pop. In 2020, she is working on her debut album, which she says will be a huge upgrade from her initial EP. She quotes “I love making people feel good, making people feel something, and if I can do that through my music, that will make me happy.” “My parents bought me my first guitar when I was 12 and ever since that it has been my favourite thing to do,” Edith remembers. “I love writing songs, I love being able to express how I feel in melodies. For me, my EP is my diary as every song has a story.”
Born in Romania, Edith moved to the UK in order to persuade her music career. She continues to work on her distinctive brand of pop music and we are extremely excited to see what’s next.
