Romantic pop, have you ever heard of it? If you haven’t, through the ethereal celebration of the summertime sky in Dez Rocksteady’s newest single, you will cross paths with the pioneer of the genre.
‘Summertime (Clouds Are Gone)’ marries the otherworldly relationship Dez has with his guitar, creating a minimalist track that indulges in a primitive praise to the warm, short-lived British summer. Heart-warming and spirited, the single is accompanied by a quirky music video which sees the Leeds-based singer/songwriter blowing dandelions in a field.
The eccentricity of Dez Rocksteady is undoubtedly a staple in his ‘Sweety Guy Revolution’, but his music is what drives his career forward. Open-ended lyricism helps build the brand that he is aiming to achieve, with listeners being able to create their own meaning behind the songs.
Paired with the soft vocalism that is thrusted along by a tender push from earworm melodies, Dez’s superficial love for music is displayed in its truest form through his latest track.
