We’re giddily checking our texts, Facebook stalking, hoping, wishing, and praying Nick Hakim, a new Brooklyn-via-Washington D.C. artist, gives us the attention we’ve been craving. His sultry sounds fill bodies across the country with tingles. He’s the guitar-toting Sam Smith from our side of the Atlantic–our bearded, soulful warrior and your future music-crush. His buttery vocals are comparable to John Legend and his simple, beautiful harmonies deserve every bit of impending recognition.
Last week he re-debuted his latest single, “Cold,” from his upcoming Where Will We Go Part 1 EP, which drops July 14th. His music speaks to the lonely, the broken hearted, and probably the broken hearteds’ pets. If you’re in a perfect relationship, listen, cry together, and make your relationship even more perfect. Nick Hakim’s music is fulfilling but also leaves you wanting so much more.
