Lauriana Mae - Like a Drum (Beat It)

Posted 4 years ago
Producer:
Kwame
Album:
Love Mae EP

Don’t let Booth newcomer Lauriana Mae‘s innocent appearance and vintage-inspired style fool you. When it comes to sex and romance, the Atlantic Records pop songstress is hardly shy. In fact, her latest EP single is about as straight-up as you can get while still nursing hopes of radio airplay. If you didn’t immediately guess from the title, Like a Drum (Beat It) finds Mae using percussion as a thinly—and I mean thinly—veiled euphemism for the other kind of banging. Veteran beatsmith Kwame‘s gets eclectic on the production tip, layering modern-pop synth arpeggios over a jazzy, horn-fortified rhythm section as the Jersey crooner tests how far you can push a double entendre before it becomes singular. (”I want you hittin’ with conviction,” is one thing, but I can’t think of a music-related situation in which you’d utter the sentence, “I feel like an animal, wanna take off all my clothes.”) Has Lauriana Mae succeeded in seducing you with this bold and brassy selection? Like a Drum and two more original jams can be found on debut EP Love Mae, available now on iTunes.
