BE NO RAIN Shares Synth-Pop Marvel ‘Call Back’

Drenched in dreamy pop sounds and synthesisers, Call Back is an instant hit.

Be No Rain 2020

London’s Be No Rain has released new single Call Back, lifted from his debut album Strawberry Backstory, out now. Taking its inspiration from the idea of longing within a never ending cycle and craving love and belonging, the new single is an amalgamation of 70s pop and an indie summer dream. The soft but vulnerable vocals compliment a heavy layering of familiar retro synthesiser sounds that turn the track into a magical moment of joy.

Speaking on the track, Be No Rain shares:

‘Call Back’ is a song about longing, set within a cycle of eternal recurrence. The title is a simple pun; a returned phone call or an action that harkens back to a previous moment. Throughout my debut album, the protagonist senses himself trapped within an endless cycle of heartbreak. So this is perhaps where the cycle begins anew; with the aching hope of new love, and the eery sense that you’ve lived this moment before. The video picks up the story from the ‘Deadweight’ and ‘All Night Right’ videos. The last time we saw these characters our protagonist had just been jilted at prom. Rather than face the pain of rejection, he conjures a world where good and evil are binary and opposing forces. It’s a sort of plaintive, saviour-fantasy where the smirking prom king, and his friends are transmorphed into an evil robot cabal.
