Deniz Koyu follows up his widely supported single, “Next To You” released earlier this summer. Entitled “Without You,” the emotive second part of the story features Jess Ball. While “Next To You” embodied the epitome of the early stages of falling for someone, “Without You” takes the other person’s viewpoint after the short-lived couple is separated.
Jess Ball’s breathy, soulful vocals matches Deniz Koyu’s continued experimentation with a breezy, melodic, radio-friendly vibe. Although the lyrics can be interpreted as bittersweet, “Without You” is still an upbeat and groovy song. Moreover, it’s a quality tune that’s perfect for warm weather days reminiscing on your own summer flings.
