“My Return Address Is You” is a breakthrough Electro Pop anthem that is poised to become a dance chart topper. Newcomer Adam Davenport teams up with Shanica Knowles who impresses with her unique vocals and subtle phrasing, which bring a more intimate feeling to this gem of a track: you actually find yourself listening to what the song is actually saying, which can be unique for this genre of music, opting for deep and meaningful lyrics (not unlike last year’s “I Took a Pill in Ibiza”) over “turning up” and hedonism. And at its heart, “My Return Address is You” is a song about love and those from our past who continue to have a piece of our heart.
“In my heart, in my head, you still haunt me,” Shanica sings in the opening over a haunting arpeggio melody on a synth emulating a music box. You can hear the instrument cranked on following a half beat of silence on the track as if the listener is evoking the memory of a loved one from the past and it immediately engages you in the song.
Indeed, Shanica’s distinctive vocals are a perfect match for Davenport’s production, with Euro-pop overtones and ear-pleasing harmonies (all sung by Knowles) that blend seamlessly against the EDM backdrop. The track delivers a catchy hook (“My return address is you, property of your heart”) and then surprises with a “dope” drop that brings the track to the next level.
But perhaps the most powerful moment in the song is found in the bridge, a free-floating atmospheric echo chamber of vocals that is a post-modern take on Phil Spector’s wall of sound. The beat is stripped away for a few moments but then reintroduced like a driving heartbeat as Shanica stretches a note for seven and a half seconds, the end of the phrase “You belong right here.”
“My Return Address is You” is an impressive debut track from Davenport, who initiated his collaboration with Knowles by reaching out to her on Instagram. The song’s moody, euphoric vibe makes it not only suited for the dance floor but it should also play well on any radio rotation alongside the likes of Calvin Harris, The Chainsmokers or Martin Garrix.
Watch the lyric video below, which Davenport says is vaguely inspired in part by Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey. “I wanted to visually explore in a sort of abstract way the idea of traveling through space, searching for love. Similarly, I hope this song might move others to tap into love within themselves and find it in their own lives. You’re not alone.”

Exotic Electro-Pop Producer Sindresu Shares “Daydream” Single
Exotic Electro-Pop producer Sindresu has shared his recently released single “Daydream” via Sindresu Records. The Norwegian musician has previously had his music signed to the Swedish-American record label LoudKult and featured on the YouTube Tastemaker channel and Indie label ChillYourMind. In addition, he has had three of his singles, “Get Out of My Head,” “Sublime,” and “Weightless,” appear on the popular YouTube channel MrRevillz, while on air his music has received spins on Norway’s biggest radio station NRK P1 Radio. All in all, the accumulated support has helped him to reach just under 2 million streams across platforms.
Born in Sunndalsora, Norway, but based in Stockholm, Sweden, Sindre Saether Ulfsnes, also known as Sindresu, began his musical adventure at age of five, when he was taught to play the violin. Later, he picked up the guitar and sat down to learn the piano. Presently, in search of a signature sound, Sindre blends aspects of Tropical House, Future Bass, RnB, and Pop, while drawing influence from industry giants like Avicii, Big Wild, Flume, and Matoma to create music that one can compare to the work of Sam Feldt, Kygo, and Lost Frequencies.
Sindresu sets a feel-good mood with his new record ‘Daydream’. The Norwegian musician has created an upbeat tune that steals us away and transports us to a paradisal island, where we dip our toes in salty chords and lay beneath sun-baked vocals. Like the gentle crash of waves, the melodious record soothes, capturing a moment of picturesque tranquillity.
Describing the concept of the single, Sindresu says: “Daydream is about escaping reality during dark times and is inspired by a difficult period in my life. I experienced serious burnout, which left me with declined health for a time. This song tells the story of being stuck in an unfulfilling life and dreaming of better days. I had this entire song, vocal and instrumental, finished in my head before even starting to produce it, since I wasn’t able to work at the time. The vocals were written by me and performed by vocalist Clayton Jones.”
