Melancholic Dark-Pop From Emerging Talent RAÍZ With Debut Single ‘Nightmare’
With vocals reminiscent of The Weeknd or Majid Al Maskati, RAÍZ shows us how pop writing is done, with his debut release ‘Nightmare’. This is a sleek and sexy release that will leave you wanting more from your new favourite electropop artist.
Melodic, mellow trippy synth builds tension in debut single ‘Nightmare’, before an ear-candy-delight-of-a-chorus sweeps us off our feet. ‘Nightmare’ carries a modern 80’s vibe of reoccurring synths and guitar riffs, bringing us back to exciting and relatable records with a fresh and original after taste. Between the smooth verses and RnB vocals, we find hidden gems of harmonies and instruments that make us eager to re discover the track time and again.
