Linus Hablot Will Have You Coasting Into The Weekend


“Just Call” him on speed dial

There are already a generous amount of songs out there about ringing your lover's line, but none of those callers sound quite as appealing as Linus Hablot. The New York-based singer-songwriter takes his cues from moody and moving artists like Bon Iver, Lianne La Havas, and Nick Hakim. Today, we're premiering his call-to-action serenade appropriately titled "Just Call."

Hablot told us that the slow tempo song is about the feelings of anxiety and worry that wash over you while you wait for a notification on your phone. He adds, "It's definitely a love song in a way, but you could argue it's meaning could extend a little bit beyond love."

In this day and age, it's rare to hear someone begging you to call them back. Surely, you wouldn't leave Hablot hanging on the other end. (Especially not with those twangy guitars vibrating through the speakers.) It's like he's strumming on our delicate heartstrings, and we can totally relate to the sentiment.
