Melbourne-based artist Amāre returns this month with his hypnotic new single – ‘Right Now’.
After the success of his previous release ‘US’, which garnered several prominent playlist spots and over 50k in streams internationally – this time Amāre gives us a darker ‘late night club’ vibe whilst still channeling trap influences.
Opening with an almost ethereal beat which waves and swells, the track takes on a sort of dream-like quality. Amāre’s vocals enter the mix laced with reverb as he effortlessly glides between both singing and rapping. There’s a sensual soulfulness to his delivery as lyrics detail a real desire for someone and taking that chance to seize the moment with them.
“Take off your top girl / Let me take that off right now”
Blending RnB lyricism with trap-soul production by SNCS, the track is admittedly inspired by artists such as Jeremih (particularly his song ‘Neither Do I’) and this can be heard in the dark brooding tone which emanates throughout. But if anything, this feels more like a sincere homage rather than an attempt to imitate.
Running at over three minutes in length, ‘Right Now’ takes its time. With an incredibly hypnotic hook, this is backed by a lo-fi hiphop beat complete with a pulsing bassline sure to send shivers down your spine. The last minute takes on an even darker and moodier vibe as things slow right down to a crawling pace with vocals distorted cementing that dream-like otherworldly quality.
‘Right Now’ is broody, moody and to be honest – it’s pretty damn sexy. A track sure to find itself on many a playlist before long. Amāre is one to watch.
