The final single ahead of the release of Vicky Farewell’s debut album is a bit of a spoiler in that it reveals how Sweet Company will end—which contrasts a bit with the impression we’ve gotten so far of how the rest of the record unfolds. In fact “Get Me” wasn’t originally even intended to be included on the Orange County bred songwriter’s new collection of songs until she (understandably) fell under the spell of the repetition of the sugary single’s hypnotic layered synths and overwhelmingly positive lyrical content, ultimately admitting to herself that the single “captures the evolution of [her] songwriting.”

“It’s a repetitive progression with repetitive words,” she explains of the track’s deceptive simplicity, “so I created layers of harmonies and rhythmic variation to break up that flow, something that’s a little different from the rest of the album. While recording the vocals, I had this idea for the hook for a while and just couldn’t fit it into other songs I had been working on. It was like an epiphany being able to utilize it here, and so I was delighted and delirious when it finally happened. The verse is very melodic in contrast to the hook, exploring my range, taking myself out of my comfort. When I layered it on top of the chorus, I was so happy.”
