The song is an honest approach to express New Love with an uncomplicated melody structure and very simple, easy to remember lyrics.”

Amit sounds refreshingly good, guiding his thoughts in the right direction as he glides as an artist with gracious creativity. He adds, “To be honest, this song was conceived around very good friends, and although “romance” takes the foreground due to the lyrics and the general stream of words.
