Amir Obe Drops Off New Single Titled ‘Shadow’
Def Jam’s Amir Obe has come through with another single, fittingly named “Shadow.” And like the track’s namesake, Obe’s way to deal with structure here is surely mysterious, starting with not one but rather two separate build-ups. The main discovers him on his ASMR tip, frequenting murmurs over a strained synthesizer heartbeat. As that arrives at its apex, it unfurls into a progressively environmental soundscape, yet one with no less pressure. After a short time, things arrive at a crescendo and Obe’s vocals at long last hit in full – or isn’t that right?
Sike, there’s another build – this one marginally more threatening than the last, determined by Obe’s tight melody.”Wave hello to my shadow,” he sings, over spooky string hits. “Darkness my protection, no I never needed more / we can go to battle, wave hello my friend / there’s blood on the gravel, I’m still beside you in the end.”And with that, poop hits the fan.
Look at “Shadow” for yourself now, and give some adoration for Amir Obe’s strong new single right here – what’s your opinion of this cinematic drop?
Darkness my protection, no I never needed more
We can go to battle, wave hello my friend
There’s blood on the gravel, I’m still beside you in the end
