The charmingly sweet “Like You” is that ray of sunshine that breaks through the clouds after a storm, leaving you with a smile on your face and optimistic for new beginnings and better times ahead. It’s capped off with honeyed vocal harmonies from Wolfe and Laessig, and a nostalgic kick/snare tempo that lulls you into sheer bliss.
“Like You” wasn’t a song that had to be pushed and prodded at, it nested itself into the pages of Harmon’s journal. The song came to the UK native as she sat down on a Brighton pier, transfixed by the sunset, and a ballet of starlings as they danced with the crests of the oceans waves. A song lyric began to dance its way into her mind with them, "I've seen the starlings, in my home town, dance above the pier. First they dive, and then they tumble, then all at once they turn and disappear."
Harmon describes the song as falling out all at once and then flourishing with the stomps and claps inspired by her own boot tapping in the kitchen, while Wolfe and Laessig’s joyful “oohs” and “ahhs” at the bridge truly tied the imagery together.
