At first listen, I was really stuck by Ryn Weaver's amazing voice. The 21-year-old New Yorker clearly knows how to play with her natural instrument.

I also enjoy the growing rhythm of the instrumental, and the use of xylophon. But at the same time, could you expect less than a catchy instrumental when the song has actually been produced by Michael Angelakos (Passion Pit's singer), Benny Blanco and Cashmere Cat!?

To be quite fair, something bothers me in the output but I can't really pin it down... The repetitive "BOOM" along chorus annoys me a bit - spot you here, Magnus August Hoiberg a.K.a Cashmere Cat. And I guess the tune is too R'n'B for me at some point...

All in all, I'm not a big fan of the production and I mostly have decided to share the track because of Ryn Weaver's voice.

Digging up the internet to find more information about Ryn Weaver; she turns out to have already collaborated with Cashmere Cat, lending her voice on "With Me". Hear the girl's lasciviously humming? Well, apparently, that's Ryn.

Believe it or not, her collaboration with this dream-team of producers happens to be a great coincidence. However, I'm sure such a surrounding won't be a hindrance for her musical career.
