Emerging New Zealand singer/songwriter Mikey Dam has shared his latest single, ‘Time’.
Following the R&B crooners last releases, ‘Needed Love’ and ‘Barry Tones’, ‘Time’ expands on the fusion of melodic based acoustics intertwined with an R&B cadence that Mikey is carving out as his niche.
Written by Mikey in a late night solo session, ‘Time’ is a raw,heart spoken account created in just one sitting. With the words falling out of his mouth in the fashion of a freestyle, the single was initially recorded on a phone voice memo; his smooth melodies containing the organic quality of an emotional cleanse.
An acoustic guitar loop sets the stripped back scene of the single, as Mikey ponders the pressures around the passage of time. Written after moving from a small town to New Zealand’s biggest city to pursue his music career, ‘Time’ depicts a period of uncertainty in Mikey’s life while developing a therapeutic tone as the song progresses.
A gentle reminder that everyone is on their own clock, ‘Time’ is an ode to moving at your own pace, surviving setbacks and not putting a deadline on your dreams.
