Brooklyn-based soul singer Nick Hakim is about to release his debut full-length Green Twins. He has released the title track, and it is as slow-burning and magnificent as anything he's ever put out.
"We wanted to imagine what it would have sounded like if RZA had produced a Portishead album," Hakim told Noisey regarding the album. He had the following to say about the new single: "I had a dream where we were walking down the road in JP (Jamaica Plain, MA) and two little green babies were running around the side walk. There was a crash behind us. As we walk away, we look back and the twins had been run over by a car. The babies were made out of some green jello texture. This dream happened three times. This song was the starting point for this project."
Green Twins arrives May 19th. Let us know what you think of the new single.
I wanted to start it with you
But somebody said we ain't ready
I admit inside me lives fear
Fear I never wanted to show you
