Bars and Melody are better than ever on ‘Love To See Me Fail’

Bars and Melody are back with their new single ‘Love To See Me Fail’.

“People aren’t going to expect what’s coming”, Bars and Melody’s Charlie Lenehan told CelebMix last year.

Lenehan wasn’t lying. ‘Love To See Me Fail’ is a bold step forward from the duo ahead of upcoming album Choke. And now that Charlie and rapper Leondre Devries are 20 and 19-years-old, they are calling the shots.

With its moody, electronic production, Lenehan’s chorus recalls his R&B influences such as Chris Brown and Bryson Tiller, whilst Devries’ switch from the crisp clean verses on Generation Z to verging on mumble rap in ‘Love To See Me Fail’ screams Lil Peep.

Treating fans to a music video on release day too, the clip sees Bars and Melody brush aside hate comments “one hit wonder”, “too much autotune” and “you can’t sing”.

It’s a poignant idea too. Bars and Melody’s growth is phenomenal and ‘Love To See Me Fail’ is just the start. In a big year of touring and a new record, 2019 is all set to be the duo’s most important year to date.
