Durham native Marco Luka has set out to make 2021 his year, with a consecutive set of single releases, starting off in February with “big talk”. Each single has been unique and a testament to Luka’s versatility and range as an artist. His newest work, “get me high” continues this trend, showing off yet another tool in Luka’s musical arsenal.
“get me high” is an emotional and stripped-down ballad. The production is carried by a melancholy piano melody that rings throughout the track. As the track builds, we hear some full strings that swell beautifully together. Lyrically, Luka opens up about a struggling relationship, his shortcomings, and his feelings of longing. The vulnerable lyrics and grand production fill the track with emotion. It's a beautiful yet dark piece of work. The track is accompanied by a monochrome visualizer, which brings the sentiments of the track to life.
Luka has been exciting to watch, delivering music for every mood and moment. Whether it's a trap banger in “big talk”, a rock tune in “do me wrong”, or something slower to get you in your feels in “get me high”, the 19-year-old from Durham can do it all.
