Nick Hakim has been the gift that has kept on giving lately, and he isn’t about to slow down. With his second EP, Where Will We Go Pt. 2 on the horizon, the singer drops the project’s second single, “Lift Me Up,” a lo-fi number that packs an emotional punch.“I wrote this song about four years ago,” he says. “I was thinking a lot about a friend who had passed away the previous year. And that same year, my older brother lost two of his closest friends.”
If you’re looking for something upbeat, look elsewhere, but if it’s stripped-down to the bones music you’re after, then look no further, because this one is as bare as it gets.
A gentle combination of Hakim’s voice and impeccable piano work that feels nothing less than irresistible!
Where Will We Go Pt. 2 will be released on September 16th via Hakim’s own label, Earseed Records.
