Los Angeles-based artist Darius Martin is back with a hauntingly beautiful new single, "TATTOO," that blurs the lines between pop and R&B. In this lovestruck pop reverie, Martin delves deep into the theme of loss and the natural drifting apart that often happens in relationships.
With "TATTOO," Darius Martin weaves a captivating web of introspection, reflecting on his past relationships. The song is a tapestry of ethereal beats, coastal riffs, and lush, transcendental sonics. Despite the pain that comes with parting ways, Martin surrenders to the serendipitous wonder of each connection. He eloquently expresses that every person who enters our lives leaves their mark, like a tattoo on our hearts and souls. In his words, "no matter what, when you get into different relationships, they can leave marks on your mental, physical, and spiritual self, and especially on your heart. So much so that when you no longer have that person in your life it hurts like ripping off the tattoo that they left on your heart. Every lover, every friend, and family member leaves these little tattoos all over your soul throughout your life."
Musically, Darius Martin's "TATTOO" straddles the line between R&B and pop, characterized by decadently abstract sonics that are reigned in by anthemic hooks. His ability to blend genres and craft songs that touch the soul has garnered him acclaim from notable publications like Earmilk, Lyrical Lemonade, Allhiphop, ThisisRNB, and more.
In "TATTOO," Darius Martin has created a piece of art that resonates with the complexities of love and the lingering imprints it leaves on our hearts.
