History continuously repeats itself. The trends of yesteryears do come back into fashion. And beloved songs get sampled and mixed into current music for a new generation of listeners to consume and adore. Even when it's not direct sampling, the sounds and rhythms of trending music are heavily reminiscent of songs that have come before it. HADEE.'s "4AM" transports me to the front row of a Billy Idol concert without having to go to one, and I love it.
"4AM" opens with a pop-punk rock motive we're all familiar with; a slowed-down guitar and drum opening of Billy Idol's "Dancing With Myself". It gives any keen listener a little nostalgic throwback. But whereas Idol's song is about being comfortable alone, HADEE.'s song has expanded to become about being spontaneous and wanting to share that spontaneity with someone. Within the chorus, for example, HADEE. begins by singing; "C'mon, come out babe / The light's almost out." When being spontaneous, the window we have to be just that is relatively short and needs to be acted upon as soon as possible. Hence the light 'almost' burning out - we need to cease the moment as it arrives, especially if we care to share it with someone.
Hadee Dosani, better known by his stage name HADEE., is a native of West Palm Beach, Florida. HADEE. is an alternative pop-rock artist whose influences lie in '80s synth-pop and '70s glam rock. "4AM" is the first single to be released from the artist, so an astounding congrats on dropping such a banger! In the upcoming future, HADEE.'s expressed an interest in releasing an album that would experiment with different musical elements. So let this be a little request slash plea; please incorporate the rhythm of Depeche Mode's "Strangelove" into a song. It needs a modern touch and HADEE. should be the artist to reintroduce listeners to it.
