Wassup Fam! And Felíz Año Nuevo! What better way to start off the year than with some FIRE music? Brand new Las Vegas-based artist and dear friend of mine, NABOR, dropped a new album called REFRESH. Vocals, lyrics, production? BOMB.
Now what is Refresh you ask? What's different about it? Well, Refresh is an easy listen. You can listen while doing homework, meditating, pregaming with friends, the whole 9. A lot of songs nowadays take away your attention with meaningless lyrics and overpowering beats, but Refresh is the opposite.
Comprised of only 6 songs, this project takes you on a melodic and refreshing (no pun intended) trip through your conscience. Deep, yes I know. You get songs about relationships, the tribulations and inner thoughts accompanying experimenting with drugs, and becoming a new person/entering a new phase of life. Refresh takes you through the mind of not only Nabor, but also any early 20's something being dropped into adulthood.
Sooo I asked Nabor a few questions about his project and artistry, and this is what he said:
Me: What’s your favorite song on the album and why?
Nabor: If I had to choose one, it would be “Favorite Type” First of all, it was a last minute addition and it was a replacement for another song. And it’s something I’m attached to, [also] the song is about someone. *nervous laughs* But the way the song came together in the studio was so swift.
Me: What was the scariest thing about releasing your album?
Nabor: The scariest thing about releasing my album was definitely putting yourself out there and exposing yourself because other people can see your thoughts and what you’ve been going through, which is scary. But I also feel brave at the same time.
Me: What do you want your listeners to know about Nabor?
Nabor: Nabor is going to be a surprise in 2018. I have a lot of little things coming, definitely more music with different fields. Growth. I want them to know I’m pretty cool man.
