Self-proclaimed as a "weirdo," Unusual Demont, is making waves with just two singles to his name, in his own unorthodox ways. What isn't unusual, though, is the familiar, yet refreshing lounge-esque sensual sound that Demont has to offer.
With his second official release (premiered yesterday with Apple Music via Zane Lowe), Demont shines with his calming R&B vocals in "Pine." Inspired by the moral dilemma of a home-wrecker ruining a downward trajectory relationship, Unusual Demont plays on the colorful imagery evoked from this specific emotion.
"As I wrote it (Pine) I imagined a roller rink in the late 90s / early 2000s lit up with green lights on a Friday night. I chose the name "Pine" because green is the color of envy and that's the exact hue I visualized at the roller rink," says Demont.
Demont juxtaposes his mellow airy vocals and subject matter of the song, with upbeat, disco-inspired production, leaving the listener slightly in their feels, yet nodding their head in affirmation. The hype around Demont is brewing after debuting his project in 2020 with his single "Amber," which amassed close to 3 million streams on Spotify alone. It's unusual that an artist reaches a feat like that with their first single, so it's safe to say we'll be watching his movements in 2021.
