Raíz is the rising pop star bringing the vibes to us this winter. The Swiss-born singer is gracing our grey days with his utterly infectious millennial bops and smooth tones. Whilst fusing with London’s multicultural music scene, Raíz goes from strength to strength this year. His latest single comes off the back of the immense success of his vibrant debut single ‘Nightmare’. Racking up over twenty-seven thousand streams, ‘Nightmare’ launched Raíz into our atmosphere as the shining star he is destined to be. Utilising the enduring force of a bored musician, Raíz relished the gift of time and solitude amid the globe’s isolation and set out to secure his place as a hot musician rising the ranks this year – and, trust me, he succeeded.
‘Over You’ is a smooth transition from impactful thematics of ‘Nightmare,’ as the semantic fields of love and nostalgia flows seamlessly from one song to another. Rooted in a modern 80s vibe, ‘Over You’ boasts a soundscape swimming in stunning synths and graceful guitar licks. At the front and centre of all this musical magic is the sensational tones of Raíz himself. Showcasing the unique tone and intricate vocal acrobatics that inaugurates Raíz as an exciting musician rising the ranks this year, ‘Over You’ is the infectious anthem dominating our playlists this winter. With over four thousand streams since its release a mere week ago, it’s evident that Raíz is a soaring star in the stream of DIY music this year – and whilst Raíz might be over the character in this catchy tune, it’s no doubt we won’t be over Raíz any time soon.
