The song is fun and energetic, mixing backbeat guitar and syncopated percussion into a sound that’s very reminiscent of a lot of late 00s pop rock. LJR’s lyrics focus on the concept of a relationship that is failing to take off due to the speaker’s lack of confidence, and his vocals are very emotional, carrying the message to an intensity independent of the instrumentals. The song culminates in the bridge, where Sarin’s traditional vocals and the intense guitar solo comes in. The impact is impressive, carrying over into the final chorus which is backed up by the traditional North Indian vocals, increasing the emotional intensity of the song.

LJR has an impressive record as a songwriter and it shines through in the music he is creating for his own album as well. “Need a Little Lovin’” is a fun yet complex song. It suggests good things to come from LJR’s debut album.
