NICK HAKIM BRINGS HIS PSYCHEDELIC-SOUL WITH “ROLLER SKATES”
From the moment you press play, you’re smitten by Hakim’s gentle and soothing voice floating effortlessly atop the psychedelia which consumes the soundscape. The kind of performance that gets the hairs on the back of your neck and arms on end, Hakim absolutely holds his own hitting each and every note to perfection. Of course, we can’t go without mentioning the soulful charm of his songwriting which serves as the core to his artistry – here, Hakim sings about a “night when I got really stoned at my friend’s house and forgot to meet up with my partner” in the first verse before patching things up in the second.
