Musical Discovery: ‘Came Here for Love’ by Sigala feat. Ella Eyre

It’s about time that Sigala graced our song libraries once more. Save for February’s Show You Love (where Sigala was only a featured artist), it was last December when the DJ got us warmed up for summer. Now that sunny days and scorching hot weather is upon us, it seems fitting that the Easy Love producer is back with a new single, Came Here for Love.

Joining him on the single is a singer who is no stranger to helping out on dance, electronic and drum-and-bass tracks – Ella Eyre. Having previously worked with Rudimental, DJ Fresh and Sigma, the 23-year-old has quite the impressive CV as a featured artist. It isn’t the first time that Eyre has worked with Sigala (real name Bruce Fielder) either, as the two joined forces on Ella’s track, Good Times.

This time however, the DJ isn’t bound by Sigma’s drum-and-bass style, instead returning to his traditional tropical house groove. With trickling marimba and sharp piano chords, we return to familiar territory. However, as one YouTube commenter points out, with slight violin-style instrumentals, the track also has a hint of Clean Bandit to it too – a slight, but nonetheless welcome change to Sigala’s usual melodies and musical make-up.

Yet, as much as it’s about Fielder’s creative construction of the track’s instrumentals, the DJ’s other strength is his ability to showcase the featured singer’s vocal talents – something which shouldn’t have been too hard given Eyre’s past experience.

Calm and minimalistic during the verses, the focus is very much on Ella up until the chorus, where the two artists’ contributions blend together for a full-on uplifting vibe.

Came Here for Love is a traditional song in many different ways. With love as the lyrical theme of love and vibrant piano chords, it’s a traditional Sigala track and thus, a traditional summer song through-and-through too.
