A Mesmerising Blend of Seductive Beats and Greek Soundscapes in Antigoni’s Latest Single, Nervous – LISTEN HERE
Antigoni’s latest single, ‘Nervous,’ sets the mood for a passionate summer with its seductive beat and notorious middle eastern soundscapes, seamlessly blending Antigoni’s sensual melodies and vocal arrangements with the production genius of Seikbeats. The track, which was co-written alongside Connor Mullally and Amira El-Shafie, explores the vulnerability and excitement that comes with connecting with someone who has caught your eye.
Speaking about the song in further detail, Dalia explains “Pink Clouds speaks about a chapter in my life where I resorted to various methods of escapism to shield myself from reality. I was dealing with my own self-destructive habits and tendencies because I was unwilling to confront many situations that were going on in my life. So I desperately searched for temporary relief to silence the chaos in my mind & I was fully aware of the harm I was causing myself, yet I simply didn’t care. With this song I hope to capture the bittersweet embrace of an escape that offers comfort amidst the pain.”
