Yusuf Siddiquee is a fairly elusive character. There’s little to be known about him from an online search, or even from his own social platforms. It is clear, though, by the things he shares and discusses via his Facebook, that he’s socially conscious and unafraid to speak his mind. It’s this honest quality that makes Siddiquee a talented songwriter.
From his recent five-track collection, Softee, Siddiquee created the retro-pop, “Inevitable.” Singing “these tears won’t lie” over a multi-layered track, Siddiquee fulfills his goal of creating a collection about self reflection. The track is in no short supply of instruments, and yet the many harmonies and vocal lines don’t over power the song. My personal favourite is the falsetto line in the background toward the end of the chorus. Great melodic choices. Groove along below:
