With the balanced mix of retro and modern, emerging artist HADEE. delivers the 80s movie soundtrack we never knew we needed with his debut single, “4AM”. Released on April 22nd, 2022, this first track of many explores the concept of letting all inhibitions go despite whatever could possibly go wrong. “4AM” is available on all streaming and video platforms.
When asked why he chose to write a song with said themes in mind, HADEE. stated, “I find that too many give in to overthinking rather than embracing spontaneity. Life presents itself as endless crossroads. Knowing when to go is what you have to decide. If you take too long, you might just miss your ride.”
Most of us would be a hypocrite to say we are not guilty of that system of thinking. With that being said, this is the point HADEE. lyrically combats in ‘4AM’. While the argument could be made that the majority of us no longer find drive in the long-term chase, rather falling for lust and immediate satisfaction, he shows consideration to the latter.
“To me, regret is the one thing that can eat you alive far after you die. Any other fear is simply a mortal construct,” HADEE. states. In this context, the south Florida musician sides with spontaneity and welcomes all doors it may open.
When asked about his musical influences, the solo artist gave a wide list ranging from 80s synthpop likened to Billy Idol, 70s/80s Bowie eras, a touch of classic film noir, finished off with a balanced mix of modernity such as The Killers, Two Door Cinema Club, Young The Giant, and Walk The Moon to name a few.
In his first single “4AM”, his intention was for the listener to feel the beauty that prequels the pain we all experience even in our best relationships. Similar to the numbing shot of adrenaline you feel when you tear something, love has a warm way of easing you in. It tells you, “I’m here, but what follows may sometimes hurt.” Each of us do it for different reasons, yet the commonality we find at the end stands true for everyone: We learn more about who we really are.
