SONG - INTO MINE
Lenken details an intimacy of connection over a pristine Pop instrumental that combines elements of Soul and R&B. More than a superficial love ballad Lenken’s latest single ‘Into Mine’ is an ode to deep limitless love. Stating the song is “about the deeper connection of a relationship. The intertwining of two souls. Feeding off each other in terms of energies.” Over energetic chords, subtle percussion that progresses to a crescendo of Trap and Hip-Hop hi hats, snares and snaps during the chorus, lush piano chords during an acoustic bridge, and harmonious melodies Lenken creates the feeling of pure joy and ecstasy. The perfect tune for any occasion Lenken’s keen ear for melody, song structure and relatable content make ‘Into Mine’ and immediate single masterpiece.

SONG - BACK AROUND
Retro synth melodies and heavy bass-work back up a soulful RnB vocal for this catchy and intimate new single from Lenken.
Leading with a somewhat nostalgic vibe from the outset, the thud of the beat and the contrasting clap builds a vastly accessible pop-like mood. Weave in these long-form verses, passionate and cleanly mixed, and things slowly but surely lean towards refreshing new realms.
The latter half welcomes in a level of Gospel inspiration as multiple voices unite to increase that underlying warmth. The clear emotion and volume of the leading voice explodes in unison with this – resulting in a wholly immersive, addictive final hook, that begs the amateur singers out there to try and follow it along.
Ultimately, Lenken puts in a stunning performance, and while the song has the comfort of yesteryear in certain stylistic aspects, it feels like a genuinely new piece of writing. Nothing comes to mind other than how impressive the structure, set-up and delivery are. Beautifully crafted, I look forward to hearing more.
