There are times when we all just need a moment of carefree escape. Valentino DeMartini is providing that escape with his single ‘Dancin’ Backwards’. Written during a dark and painful time of his life, he invokes the surreal feelings of hot summer nights that seem to last forever and leave reality melting around the edges.
While the single was written in 2019, the escapism on offer is one that many people need right now with the continued uncertainty of the world. With lively tones and a party atmosphere, the single chases away the darkness and leaves you feeling light. If you are in the mood for a single that gets you moving while getting you out of your own head for a while, this is the one for you.
The summer vibes of ‘Dancin’ Backwards’ starts from the first moment. The toe-tapping vibes of the melody easily transport you from the doldrums of life to somewhere much more relaxing. Each tone adds to the summer feeling of the single to the point where you can almost feel the hot air sinking into your skin. The melody alone is enough to have you escaping from the world and feeling a little lighter. A soft funk vibe is woven into the music which combines with a touch of Arabic influence later in the track for a delightful movement. The rather abrupt end to the track flings you back into reality, but lets you keep the good vibes.
DeMartini’s vocals are whiskey warm and silken as they slide against your ears. The movement of his voice offers the surreal feeling of long summer nights. When he whispers through the soundscape, he beckons you closer for an enjoyable time. His performance is almost dreamy as you are tugged and danced into the world of his lyrics.
