Another month of sweltering heat and random rainstorms has passed in North Carolina! Peep these local NC artists who stayed hydrated enough to create some iconic art.
Ki The Artist - Pull Up
July 7, 2022
Ki The Artist set the summer vibe with this song! Elements of the beat include soulful electric guitar, 808s, and claps. Ki sings about chilling with someone she's interested in and vibing out because she feeling right! A perfect song to play at a kickback or when you're just relaxing alone, thinking about making moves.

Essi Sings - Has It Been A Long Time?
July 12, 2022
The jazz vibes are strong with this one! Essi Sings dropped the music video for "Has It Been A Long Time?" from her EP Bedroom Bops. The video was shot at Dorthea Dix by Elijah Smith. The music is produced by Essi herself and the video is about having to reach out, past your ego, to help a friend who needs you. This video has a vintage indie-jazz vibe that is perfect to listen to when spending time in nature, slow dancing with a lover, or just boppin' around your bedroom!

Kent Danger - Saturn!: The Bringer of Old Age
July 29, 2022
Kent Danger's first ever EP is a blend of multiple genres and includes his single previously featured in NC DROPS MAY 2022, "Aries Rising". There are varieties of indie, rock, trap, and house elements that give the EP many dimensions. Lyrically, the songs are generally about his point of view in common (or not-so-common!) social situations that contain emotions we all might find familiar. The lyrics hit like a diary or a quick look into Kent's actual thoughts! This vibe fits well for road trips, skateboarding, and it would be amazing at a music venue live!
