Australian singer Reuben de Melo drops “How Does It Feel”
PERTH-BASED singer Reuben de Melo launched his newest single “How Does It Feel.” The song was inspired by the artist’s past relationship experiences with his partner and is about the human nature of wanting more. With an unsettled heart, broken pride and a handy ukelele, this song was written to be a form of catharsis for the indie singer-songwriter, as he makes peace with his frustrations and personal growth. He shares, “The opposite of giving is never to take but receive because it is in receiving that you realize your giving is endless — this is what I think love is, endless.” Accompanying this release, is a lyric video that describes the beautiful married couple’s life in a simple yet lovely animation.
