’Let Me Be Your Man’ is a story about a boy revealing himself to reach the unreachable. The moment when you realize that you might have a chance for the right one, happens in a split second. ‘Let Me Be Your Man’ is a charming pop tune, starting off with a playful guitar and continuing with a subtle vibe of rhythmic psych pop. The song crystallizes in the uplifting chorus when you can hear a sincere request from a boy to a girl. The track is the first single from the forthcoming debut album and due to be released on April 1st.

Check out the song below:

The idea for ‘Let Me Be Your Man’ originally sprang up over two years ago. I was casually playing my guitar, taking my own sweet time, goofing around. Still, it took a while for me to fine-tune it. We tried to arrange the song with the Pets for our first EP, but it didn’t feel right. It seems that the song also took its own time, from which I’m really happy about – now it feels more special. 

I’ve always been keen on songs that combines pop sensibility with somehow odd elements. Songs that have a strange and absorbing undertone, without losing their catchiness. I feel that ‘Let Me Be Your Man’ has that kind of nature, even though it’s a simple pop song. It’s about a boy reaching for the unreachable, being honest and open. That’s how we, the Pets, are performing our music – with sincerity and passion.” – Anssi / Sofa Pets
