Review: "One Summer" - Marco Tamimi

Marco Tamimi One Summer Cover Art

Reminiscing on all of the fun memories, what if's, and "what happened"'s, Tamimi perfectly captures the essence of fleeting, summery romance in his hit single, 'One Summer'. This song perfectly encapsulates our seasonal lovesickness and alleviates some of our saturated hopes with it's lighthearted, feel-good vibe. Tamimi's lyrics are weighted, carrying a message that reminds that even though things don't work out in the ways we hope, life still goes on and the seasons still change. Tamimi takes us on a beautiful roller coaster of emotions, allowing us to experience the highs and lows of pursing that second shot at love and entertain the thought that "maybe we could work this time around". Spiraling into a frenzy of emotions and questioning his own actions, ‘One Summer’ wins us over with Tamimi's signature genuineness that lingers long after the song is over. Even though this single sums up our love lives with reality-crushing "one sorry, too damn late", one can't help but sing their heart out alongside Tamimi.

Simply put, 'One Summer' is a lively masterpiece. The raw emotion Tamimi pours into this song resonates deeply in all of us who share his yearning for connection, but even so, we're left with this encompassing/enveloping warmth that makes us want to shout the lyrics at the top of their lungs. His vocals start off subtle, accented with a soft vibrato that draws us in and leaves us hooked on his every word. As we cross the song’s bridge and enter the chorus, the drums pick up and the smooth bass hits even harder when it's booming at max volume in our cars. The fast-paced, cheery instrumental coupled with Tamimi’s sincerity makes for an increasingly climactic back-and-forth throughout the song. Tamimi knows how to balance the sentimental with the carefree, working to create an impactful impactful equilibrium of sound. 'One Summer' is a brilliant production that heals the unresolved angst from our scorched summer flings and makes our worries fade away.

This English singer-songwriter doesn't seem to be slowing down when it comes to releasing new, passionate tunes that are beloved by fans all over! Succeeding his debut single titled 'Different Eyes', 'One Summer' hit massive numbers across many platforms, with over 10 million streams on Spotify alone; it's safe to say that this song is a consistent repeat on all of our summer set lists. Tamimi's thoughtful lyrics and authentic brand make his music incredibly relatable, causing audiences to gravitate towards his one-of-a-kind voice. Drawing inspiration from artist groups like MUNA and Counting Crows, Tamimi has continued to hone his craft, define his sound, and bring such a refreshing artistry to the music world. In just a few years, Tamimi has truly left his mark on the world of indie-pop and doesn't seem to be slowing down any time soon with more releases underway! With this song being the first release of upcoming debut EP, we can expect plenty more unforgettable bops to get stuck in our heads.
