As people are beginning the year by anticipating exciting releases and updating their playlists with new music, Saudi-based rising star EON released his latest electronic R&B track ‘Gemini’.
The track was released on New Year’s Eve exclusively on Anghami and then released on other music platforms on 5 January.
The alternative R&B/Indie Pop track is expected to take centre stage in the independent music scene in the beginning of the year while EON is working on his next album.
The track is a beautiful dark fantasy of a Gemini that tackles both love and bipolarity; a fusion of two different parts of EON’s world. The lyrics of the track speak a lot about the artist, who’s used to writing songs that are very raw and personal, speaking about his own experiences and things that listeners can only know about by consuming his music.
Furthermore, Gemini’s music signal’s EON’s return to alternative hip-hop. Even though the artist started his musical journey as a rapper, he diverted a bit into pop in recent releases, however, it seems that he is going back to basics with his upcoming releases.
Followers of EON’s musical career can see that he’s learnt a lot in his journey, slowly finding his raw and dark, distinct sound. However, as every true artist, he’s still on a quest to experiment and learn more about himself and his sound, taking things to the next level every step of the way.
Additionally, EON is planning to participate in some live performances soon and any music fan would know how his dreamy, melancholic sound would sound like live. When in front of a crowd, EON likes to really get people into each song, driving their emotional core outwards and presenting a very unique experience to each and every listener.
After a successful 2021 for the indie artist with more than half a million plays on Anghami alone, Gemini is set to be the promising teaser for what EON has in store for 2022. Not only should music fans not let EON slip under their radar, but they should also pay attention to the unique indie sound EON is introducing to Saudi Arabia and the rest of the region.
