Take A Bow immediately starts with an echoing guitar that works as the perfect counterpoint for the supersonic vocals that Somaya lays out within. There are nods to performers like Fiona Apple, Sheryl Crow, and Bif Naked during the track’s 3 minute run time. With a nod back to the late nineties, Somaya is able to boldly forge through with a sound that will garner listeners by the barrelful. The bit of electronic fuzz that plays at the bottom of Take A Bow provides the composition with a fullness. There are multiple layers that fans will be able to devour over multiple listens.
At the most base of levels, Take A Bow can be enjoyed on its own as a hook-laden, infectious pop single. The production of Somaya’s latest single is proficient enough to allow each constituent element of the track to shine in its own way while working together to make for something considerably greater than the sum of their constituent parts.
The single’s considerable depth is precisely why it is such a no-brainer for slotting into a wide variety of different genre playlists and radio station rotations. While the easiest slam-dunk would be onto any sort of station that plays the likes of Lady Gaga or Katy Perry, a good case can be made for Somaya to turn up in heavy rotation on college and alternative stations as well.
