Like Lions, the solo project of established songwriter-producer Patrick O’Neill, has released “U Got Me”, an emotionally charged follow up to his energetic hit “Older”, which saw massive success across the music market. “I Got Me” throws back to the 1980’s, merging modern and retro production techniques. Like Lions’ smooth pop vocals are complemented with a distant vocoder and soft piano chords to create a unique mood. With his recent music, Like Lions has tried to get away from the more melancholy style of his past work:
“I’ve always gravitated toward moodier music, but over the past couple years, I’ve tried to break that lyrical rut and open up about the things that make me genuinely happy. It’s been a rewarding process for sure.” – Like Lions
Patrick O’Neill’s musical career is certainly just beginning, and it’s evident with the release of “U Got Me” that he knows how to create a unique, catchy piece of music. The Seattle based producer is definitely one to keep an eye on, with the upcoming release of his third studio album in the fall.
