LA-based rockers Starveya delivers an anti-love song titled “Let You In,” an intricately constructed soundscape filled with swirling riffs that takes you into the vortex of their creativity. “Let You In” is not necessarily a song that condemns the idea of love, but one that taps into romance that was never real. Whether it was a lopsided one or imaginary one, Starveya leaves it up to its listeners. “I’ve never felt this way before / But my dreams were so much more” croons lead vocalist Aaron Martinez. “Let You In” blooms in a slow-burning fashion with its expansive chords and swelling choruses that nestle you between the spectrum of reality and fantasy. There is a constant feeling of moodiness throughout the track that captures the heartache of realizing the pseudoness of it all. Hit play:
In their own words, the song is “Sort of an anti love song, it is loosely about love and relationships. Not so much about a love lost as it is about a love that never was. Or never was what you thought it to be or dreamt it to be.”
