Song of the Day: “Take Him Down” by HEBE

Today’s song is “Take Him Down” by HEBE. This Amsterdam-based singer-songwriter was born into a family of artists.

HEBE’s father is a film and documentary director, her mother is a theater designer and teacher at The Rietveld Academy and her brother is a visual and light designer, which helped pave the way for her career in music.

After graduating from the The Conservatory of Amsterdam in 2014, the 25-year-old HEBE Vrijhof released her 6-track debut EP, The Beginning in October 2015, which allowed her to show the world a personal profile of herself.

This is the latest single from the European artist. Produced by Jack van de Ven and co-produced and mixed by Huub Reijnders, is out now via HEBE-MUSIC ahead of the release of her upcoming 9-track album Tell Me.

When describing the song, HEBE says it is about “letting out rage, about being angry without boundaries. Sometimes I can barely suppress the tendency to kick and scream, to cry in the train, to just it all out. Usually I become quiet when I’m angry or sad, but in ‘Take Him Down’ that anger and grief comes out. No silence, but feeling without shame.”

This is a powerful track that features strong vocals and uptempo electronic beats. The pop melodies match the strong lyrical stylings.

This summer HEBE is travelling through The Netherlands with one of the biggest festivals De Parade. She has also been chosen to travel 44 cities throughout her homeland with De Popronde from September until December.
