Single of the Day: Kongos – Come With Me Now 

Released by: Sony Music Entertainment Indonesia

Come With Me Now sebenarnya sudah dirilis band asal Afrika Selatan, Kongos, di tahun 2012. Namun, tahun ini single ini bersinar lagi di Amerika dan menemukan momentumnya. Apa istimewanya sehingga single ini mencorong kembali?

Dengan memadukan rock alternatif dan irama etnik bernama kwaito, Come With Me Now terdengar sangar. Dengan pengecualian di bagian bridge, tepat di tengah lagu, tone tiba-tiba berubah menjadi mellow dan subtil, terdengar begitu menyentuh, sebelum kembali ke wujudnya semula.

Kwaito adalah subgenre yang memadukan antara jazz Afrika Selatan dengan pop dan house music barat. Well, tentunya kwaito bukan elemen utama dari lagu ini karena bagaimanapun rock masih menjadi kekuatan utama dari Come With Me Now. Didukung oleh vokal yang mendukung utnuk itu.

Yang mencolok memang penggunaan akordion sebagai aksentuasi lagunya. Dengan hadirnya instrumen klasik seperti ini kesan etnis tadi terdengar lebih tebal dan mendukung suasana subtil yang ingin dibangun Kongos di tengah gaharnya lagu. Dan iru berhasil.

So, yeah. Dengan keunikannya, tidak mengherankan jika Kongos bisa mencuri perhatian dengan Come With Me Now. Sebuah lagu rock yang berani tampil beda tanpa harus kehilangan jati dirinya.

LYRIC
Come with me now
Come with me now

Whoa, come with me now
I’m gonna take you down
Whoa, come with me now
I’m gonna show you how

Whoa, come with me now
I’m gonna take you down
Whoa, come with me now
I’m gonna show you how

Afraid to lose control
And caught up in this world
I’ve wasted time, I’ve wasted breath
I think I’ve thought myself to death

I was born without this fear
Now only this seems clear
I need to move, I need to fight
I need to lose myself tonight

Whoa, come with me now
I’m gonna take you down
Whoa, come with me now
I’m gonna show you how

I think with my heart and I move with my head
I open my mouth and it’s something I’ve read
I stood at this door before, I’m told
But a part of me knows that I’m growing too old

Confused what I thought with something I felt
Confuse what I feel with something that’s real
I tried to sell my soul last night
Funny, he wouldn’t even take a bite

Far away
I heard him say (Come with me now)
Don’t delay
I heard him say (Come with me now)

Far away
I heard him say (Come with me now)
Don’t delay
I heard him say (Come with me now)

Whoa, come with me now
I’m gonna take you down
Whoa, come with me now
I’m gonna show you how

Afraid to lose control
And caught up in this world
I’ve wasted time, I’ve wasted breath
I think I’ve thought myself to death

I was born without this fear
Now only this seems clear
I need to move, I need to fight
I need to lose myself tonight

Whoa, come with me now

Whoa, come with me now
I’m gonna take you down
Whoa, come with me now
