This song is certainly the vibe right now, just listen for yourself!
nxtime is a band from New York City. Comprised of Ray Rubio, a singer/songwriter, and producer from Harlem. Nate Christensen, a guitarist/producer from Northern Colorado who played in several projects in his local music scene while studying at CU Boulder. The songwriting duo are backed by drummer/producer Imhotep Williams, a drummer from the Bronx, and a rotating lineup of other local musicians.
They met through the New York City rock climbing community, then started writing together during recording sessions in Ray’s bedroom studio. They deliver upbeat, danceable rhythms and modern yet nostalgic melodies; inspired by classic RnB with the synth soaked tones of 80’s pop.
They are currently recording their debut record alongside “Groove is in the Heart” producer/mixer Mike Rogers and have several singles on the way.
The song starts with a steady paced synth and guitar, beautifully accompanied by the vocals in the first verse. I love the creative lyrical direction that leads us right into the catchy chorus. I adore the vocal delivery and the harmonies here, making the beautifully written lyrics feel silky smooth. The second verse continues the vibe of the song, further creating a soundscape that we start to feel connected to. Through and through, this song is a must add to any soft and chill vibe playlist.
The music video is also well directed and perfectly sets the visual vibe of the song, check it out below!
