Review: "Volcano" - Darius Christian

“Volcano” brings a quirky look at the combination of alt-pop, soul, funk, and R&B merged in a riveting gumbo that continues to give. With impeccable production and standout vocals, the track literally “explodes” with musical flavor, style, and atmosphere. Depicting a romance that leaves him winding up and senseless, his standout moment on the track had to be the beautifully choreographed explosive mesh of instruments with the hypnotic thrumming of his voice. Christian is gifted in navigating exactly what he seeks to draw out from the track, the eclectic mix of instruments -- thudding beats, witty wind instruments, bright pianos -- create a soundscape that leaves the audience stunned. 

From the pop infectiousness to the jazz inspired riffs, “Volcano” is an absolute joy of a song to listen to from start to finish. As Christian leaves you interested, the anticipation of what’s to come is only further bolstered by the clear vocals introducing you to the vibe. Growing through the beautiful backline that erupts at the song's climax, “Volcano” knows exactly how to leave its listeners wanting more and more, showing off his limitless imagination motivated by his determined pursuit of excellence. As Christian churns round and round the exploration of desires and indulgences, his sound further enables the listeners to feel and connect with him in that moment.

Working with many of the greats such as Miley Cyrus, Macklemore, and Gwen Stefani, Darius Christian is no stranger to the music scene. But beyond his collaborations, his solo work speaks for itself: delivering a uniquely distinct sound determined to combine pop, soul, funk, R&B, and everything in between. Christian has also built a name for himself outside of his music streams in movies, modeling, and jam-packed live performances, even performing on The Tonight Show, cementing himself on the industry’s front page. Beyond just being a singer, Christian is a songwriter, producer, and trombone player, smart and sophisticated in curating his sound. “Volcano” is only one of many of his future musical forrays.
