One of my favourite new talents this year, OCTAVIO the Dweeb is back with the fantastic ‘Slow Drag’.
Now with over 330k monthly listeners on Spotify alone and a rapidly growing fanbase joining the movement, this artist is set to become a household name in the years to come. On the new single, he says:
“In life, so many things don’t go how we plan and some things just aren’t meant to work out. But a lot of amazing things can happen when you take a step back that you could have never planned. Kind of like this song. I started writing a song and a few hours into it I realised I didn’t like it anymore haha. I went outside with the producer and writer I work with. We started smoking a joint and singing ‘take a slow drag’ as a joke. Next thing I know it’s my next single and it has turned into one of the most special songs I have ever written.”
Track of the week. Sometimes a song plays and you know right from the start that the talent will take over the world.
Case in point: LA-based artist OCTAVIO the Dweeb and his release of ‘Someday I’ll Be Happy’. This is anthemic indie-pop at it’s finest, leaving you rooting for this kid to become the next big thing.
“We’re all dweebs in our own way – just trying to fit in and find ourselves. Some people just hide it better than others. I don’t know how the hell I’ve made it this far but we all love to root for an underdog and I’m rooting for me. Hopefully you are too :)”
