An up-and-coming talent in the musical world, Pariz pushes the boundaries of style often blending different elements for a unique listening experience. This works so well with Everra’s pop and lo-fi vocals which bring her open-minded approach to music.
‘Taxi’ swells to life with a lazy easiness that has you breathing deeply with it. The hazy swelling notes form a warm blanket that drapes over your senses while the beats have a touch of hip-hop mixed with lo-fi vibes. The movement of the music makes you think of summer afternoons when it rains and the city gets a burst of humidity. This turns into a more late night feeling when the swirls of twinkling tones take over. When this happens, you are drawn into the flickering lights of the city at night that whip past as you drive. There is a rather dreamy feeling to the melody as it washes over you with the hazy warmth of the instrumentation.
The movements of the melody enhance Everra’s vocals. Her voice has a delightful touch of lo-fi that makes it seem just out of reach. While just beyond your grasp, her vocals are mesmerising in their chilled movement. Woven into her performance is a search for the thrills of risqué encounters which touches on a thread of loneliness. There is a feeling of something more to the performance as the lyrics bring a gentle understanding that something more can come in time.
