American songsmith nic violets is the purple-hearted prince. A frequent collaborator with the likes of Rapta, Nessly, Brevin Kim, and Austin Skinner, this time round he brings us his new single daisy.
The artist has made his mark by blending elements of alternative rock, trap, pop, and funk to create a genre-bending style that leaves listeners yearning for luxury goods, fast cars, and lost lovers. He released his first single of the year with Cartier Kisses, earning critical acclaim from various taste-makers and fans alike and is now focused on releasing new material every month.
On daisy, violets wraps up his trademark introspective writing in alternative pop packaging. A deliciously grooving bass line drives this piece, highlighted by flanged lead guitar and the artist’s swaggering vocal delivery.
Commenting on the track, the artist said, “I wrote this song about messing up a good thing. The back end of the chorus reads: I turn daisies to weeds, be careful where you plant your seeds.”
He added, “It’s important to take a step back and realise what’s in front of you before it’s too late. With an array of raw, live instruments and a strong message, ‘daisy’ is a refreshing change from the oversaturated sea of music that exists for the sake of popularity.”
