MOVING AROUND - ESSAYEM

MOVING AROUND - ESSAYEM

Having a certain quirk about oneself as an artist or performer is certainly an important characteristic to incorporate into one’s arsenal, but it’s an entirely different story when the artist naturally and undeniably enters what can only be considered their own distinct and unmatched lane. 💫 And throughout his discography Essayem has been just as successful at that, as he is at intertwining the worlds of alternative music and hip-hop, balancing a telling sense of blissful, catchy, yet self-aware melodies and themes from track to track without fail. ✅ His newest single “Moving Around” is just another one of his many offerings that embodies all that with some invoking and solemn verses contrasting artfully with a progressing instrumental that draws the senses back to the vibe of a charmingly contemporary ballad, which carries a necessary dynamic aspect that the song would certainly not be complete without. 🍜This built atop of defiant drums and engulfing bass lines, he creates an enticing record with a euphoric balance that lays down both sentimental, yet characteristic lyrical themes along with an all-too-upfront and definitively confident moving flow through it all. 🎙✨ This tied together with the track’s short yet emotional narrative and unique vocal inflections, he goes further to beautifully harmonize and channel a higher register, showing exactly why he is one of the most inventive and experimental artists this town has to offer.👨🏼‍🔬🧪 It’s a release that is another atmospheric and moving component of a discography that has been nothing less than stellar thus far and I can only wonder when this string of singles will stop and he finally releases a full length project that is sure to split heads open. 🧨
