Estee is an alternative/pop/chillwave artist from Folly Beach, SC. Pulling musical inspiration from 80’s synth-R&B, downtempo, and dream pop, her influences have ranged from Sade to Portishead, drawing comparisons to artists like Little Dragon and Tei Shi.
Estee’s debut LP In the Dream was released on April 4, 2020.
One of the highlights is Nature. Fantastic piece of work. Estee captivates listeners with sublime vocals, catchy melodies, 80’s sounds, and solid hooks.
Lyrically, the artist remains as thoughtful as ever. She’s a real storyteller. Her lyrics are impressive.
Speaking about the track, Estee says: ”I wrote this song about first love. It’s about the natural instinct to give your all to that first person in a way you may never be able to give yourself again. It was co-produced and engineered by Wolfgang Zimmerman (has produced for Band of Horses, SUSTO, and Grace Joyner).” She adds: ”The music video was shot in a family-owned skating rink an hour from my hometown in South Carolina. I wanted it to feel like a late 70’s early 80’s Friday night at the roller disco. I normally play guitar when I perform so I never get the opportunity to incorporate choreography in my live shows so I wanted to feature that fun element into the music video. The video was self-directed and as with all of my music and creative projects, independently produced and released.”
Estee continues to deliver good music. Nature has all the ingredients of a hit. Iconic song. Perfect for today.
