Premiere: Haley Urbo – “Dizzy”


Releasing today alongside Haley Urbo’s debut EP, Iridescent, “Dizzy” is a soulful and creative track that nicely emphasizes Urbo’s standout aesthetic. With shades of Flying Lotus and Thundercat apparent in the backing rhythm section, string-laden swipes, and mellow organs, “Dizzy” wastes no time in strutting its stylistic vigor. Lounge-friendly piano arrives after the vocals’ first emergence, with a lusher, caressing vocal embrace toward the track’s conclusion. Through all these moments, “Dizzy” easily consumes.

Per the artist, “Dizzy” is a described as “a hypnotic recollection of an overwhelmingly chaotic and passionate love, as magnetic as the sun’s gravitational pull on the planets.”

Stream the EP in full below:
