Dreamy – Nervous (Antarcticrecord Remix) Review
Writing music about darker topics is always a struggle, especially when deeply personal. Many artists understand how they feel, but it’s a whole other problem finding the best way to express those emotions in the form of music. That’s the challenge set up for up-and-coming Dark Pop and Trap artist Dreamy faces with their single, “Nervous.” Is the single a solid stand-out, or is it more run-of-the-mill stuff? Find out in our full review below!
“Nervous” is a powerful and dynamic track, a deep dive into the darker end of someone’s psyche. The smooth trap EDM beat sets the mood perfectly for the song’s exploration of heavy topics such as depression, cheating, and sexual relationships. Dreamy’s soulful vocals and vulnerable lyrics draw the listener in, creating a haunting and unforgettable listening experience.
The song begins with a slow build, as Dreamy’s vocals float over the gentle piano chords and subtle electronic beats. The lyrics immediately set a tone of unease and anxiety as Dreamy sings about feeling “nervous” and “lost.” The song takes on more intense energy as the beat builds, with Dreamy’s vocals becoming more urgent and raw. From here, Dreamy takes on an almost spiteful role, an interesting twist on the concepts of the song.
Throughout the track, Dreamy explores a range of complex emotions, delving into the painful realities of depression and the complex dynamics of sexual relationships. The lyrics are deeply personal and revealing, with Dreamy laying bare the raw emotions of infidelity and betrayal. However, with all this in mind, there’s a certain simplicity to how the song’s message is delivered that makes it easy to digest.
“Nervous” never feels preachy or heavy-handed despite the heavy subject matter. Instead, Dreamy delivers the lyrics with a delicate touch, allowing the listener to immerse themselves in the song’s emotions fully. The production is slick and polished, with the EDM beats and electronic flourishes adding a layer of texture and depth to the track. We give full props to the sound engineers on this one. The song simply sounds stunning.
Overall, Nervous is an excellent single showcasing Dreamy’s immense talent and potential as a musical artist and songwriter. The song will resonate with anyone who has ever struggled with depression, infidelity, or the complexities of sexual relationships. With its haunting melody and raw emotion, “Nervous” is a track that will stay with you long after the final notes have faded away. If you’re a smooth trap, EDM, or soulful pop music fan, then you owe it to yourself to check it out!
