Swiss born, Portuguese & Angolan singer/songwriter RAÍZ has fused with London’s multicultural music scene to venture into his newfound territory of edgy bangers and millennial pop. The name RAÍZ stems from the Portuguese word ‘root’ and is a direct link to the deep cultural and musical references which inspire each song in the new EP ‘Saudade’. Saudade meaning: a longing for something that has been. RAÍZ has a new single ‘Nightmare’ which is available on all music platforms.

This incredible single has a great chilled vibe to it and a beat which will have you tapping along within seconds. The unique sound grabs your attention, you will fall in love with this single within seconds. I love how the track builds and it’s feel good chilled vibe which for me really makes this track stand out.

The vocals brilliant and really makes this track stand out, the vocals are full of emotion and are a joy to listen too. The soft vocals really make this track and for me shows that you don’t have to belt vocals out to make an instantly memorable single.

RAÍZ has created a great sound that works so well, from the upbeat temp to the vocals and sound there is nothing I don’t love about this track which you can tell has been put together with so much attention to detail.

Great job!
