The song is easy to relate to, it addresses a common relationship issue where one starts to have a critical look at the person one is involved with. You start questioning whether your partner is what you thought they were, you are having second thoughts albeit silently.
‘The Other‘ was penned by Leff with the collaboration of Michael Matosic and manages to seamlessly fuse pop and R&B and is characterized by it’s mesmerizing piano chords mixed with nicely done percussion, but the cherry on the cake is Lauv’s perfectly pitched vocals.
