This recent release “SUPER DOVE” by artist NHB Billz has a pretty big feeling of experimentation to it from the very beginning. It’s a really unusual setup, alongside what is genuinely a really well-written and interesting song, so on the whole what you get is something completely fresh, yet familiar enough to keep you feeling comforted, and listening intently.
It’s difficult to pinpoint what it is about the music, everything just fits brilliantly, it feels like an instant classic. The song has a stunning catchy soundscape that is further enhanced by the immense wall of sound surrounding it, and on top of this the melodies and the lyrics throughout add everything you might hope for when looking for a brand new hip hop track to sink your teeth into. Something about the way that it’s been written adds a hearty dose of nostalgia to the ambiance, yet the whole thing sounds, without a doubt, completely new – and that’s what makes it so exciting. This whole thing is addictive, fresh and effective. It’s one to play at full volume, one that will stay with you afterward – making you feel the need to listen again – and yet another reason why you’d be foolish to miss out on a live show from this amazing soul.
The video accompanying the song is no less than an epic effort from everyone involved as well, all in all, offering up an impressive and welcome work of art for fans (existing and potential) to delve into. It’s great to hear this artist come out with something so fresh and awesome. He is definitely worth checking out if you haven’t yet.
To listen fully is to let the track really get inside your head, and this, in all honesty, is where songs like this belong. Anything that provokes thought in such a way, that opens the mind to alternate views of reality – makes you reconsider, re-analyze things – is more than worth letting into your consciousness. On the other hand, musically speaking, the track very much belongs at a live show. In many ways, you can hear the energy of the music and the rhythm, you can feel the passion of the ideas and the performance, and all in all – it’s a truly refreshing kind of musical artistry for this time in our lives. To really take on the concept and the substance that makes up the songwriting, it would be crucial, and probably immensely enjoyable, to witness NHB Billz performing the song live. In amidst a set of much more of his original material, of course. The opening lyric is one to grab your attention in itself, and it only gets more and more interesting from there on in. Well worth a listen.
