Medusa: “Man Like That”

By: Eric Reyes
April 25, 2020

R&B and Soul never sounded so good. Medusa lets the world know just what kind of man, maybe the impossibly perfect man, makes the cut in the chill track “Man Like That.”

Her sultry voice rattles off her desired qualities like an academic dissertation on what the right kind of man is. Harmonically rich, the indulgent sound of her voice and the backing beat really sink in, melting in your ears like audible honey. Flexing her vocal range, from the brassy almost spoken-word core stanzas to the higher-register chorus, Medusa lets her talent shine. Not settling for what comes your way, but knowing what you want is tough in an ocean crowded with metaphorical fish. But the firm, decisive, meaningful partner constructed in this satisfyingly tender song leaves no room for any illusion. If you’re in the market for a man, and you’re tired of the usual selection, pop this song on and remind yourself that there is more than the budget menu. Go on, treat yourself, know what you deserve. Tell us what you think on social media at: @gasmaskmagazine.
