Seph, a musical luminary from the vibrant city of Columbus, Ohio, has firmly established himself as a formidable talent within the music industry. Drawing inspiration from the likes of Allie X, Marina, Tove Lo, and Years & Years, Seph’s artistic journey traces its roots back to the “Afterglow” project and a collaborative stint as “Twinzsz.”
Yet, Seph’s destiny as a solo artist was always a certainty, as he began crafting his songs independently at the tender age of 13. His passion for music evolved into a formal pursuit when he embarked on studies in music recording and audio production at the Recording Workshop in early 2018. The culmination of his creative odyssey thus far culminated in the release of his debut album, “Electric Expressions,” in 2021, featuring standout tracks like “Out of My Head” and “Euphoria.”
Seph’s latest offering, “Secrets Taste Like You,” offers a tantalizing glimpse into his forthcoming album, “Sophiamore.” With this new record, Seph channels his influences into a sonic landscape that’s more intense, emotional, and passionate than ever before. The journey embarked upon in “Secrets Taste Like You” delves deep into the realms of longing and the haunting memories of a lost love. From the very onset, the haunting repetition of the phrase “secrets taste just like you” sets the tone for the emotional odyssey that unfolds. The lyrics delve into the profound sensation of discovering a love so deep and all-consuming that it feels like a tantalizing vision of ecstasy and an elusive fantasy.
As the song progresses, the listener is irresistibly drawn into the artist’s emotional tapestry. Seph’s heartfelt vocals convey an overwhelming sense of desperation, as if he’s fervently pleading for the return of a love that has slipped through his fingers. The lines “As long as I live, I don’t want to see another day without you” strike a universal chord, resonating with anyone who has experienced the agonizing yearning for a connection that has been severed.
The chorus emerges as a poignant declaration of love’s transformative power. It speaks to the beauty of two lonely hearts finding each other, creating something profoundly special and undeniably right. The yearning to be taken higher, to experience a love that transcends the constraints of the ordinary, permeates every note and lyric.
“Secrets Taste Like You” is an intimate exploration of the enduring impact of love and the profound emptiness that lingers in its absence. Seph’s evocative lyrics and soul-stirring delivery transform this track into a captivating and emotional journey—one that continues to resonate long after the music has faded away. It stands as a testament to Seph’s remarkable ability to convey the intricate tapestry of human emotion through his music, leaving an indelible mark on the souls of his listeners.
The single was recorded at Vaughan Music Studios in Upper Arlington, Ohio, with the skilled hands of Matthew Hagberg contributing to its production. “Secrets Taste Like You” is more than a song; it’s a piece of Seph’s heart, laid bare for all to experience.
