In the very rare instance that 070 Shake releases music, fans can always expect something truly groundbreaking.
One of music’s most unique voices is back with a brand new song for the first time in over six months. Before her previous release in March 2021, she hadn’t dropped music since her debut album Modus Vivendi — which was released in January 2020. Since then, we’ve seen her share just three solo singles and three features over the course of the year.
Now, the 23-year-old New Jersey artist most known for her work on Kanye West’s album ye has teamed up with producer GENER8ION for their new track titled “Neo Surf.”
What makes 070 Shake so special is that she is undefinable and unable to be put on a box. She’s not specific to just one genre and her music is full of passion and purpose. Her charming voice and impressive melodies have the ability to captivate audiences from all different perspectives of taste.
“Neo Surf” is an extraordinarily serene track that relies on its piano-driven beat and touts other sonic elements in plucked synths, a soft melodic pad and female background singers — reminiscent of a “doo-wop” acapella group. 070 Shake effortlessly harmonizes over the track, all while she parades her incredible lyrical and singing abilities.
I’ll be gone tonight
I guess I won’t see you
I’ll be gone for the night
Searching for this feeling
I’ll get used to the stage, get used to the stage
Just for a minute
Oh, I’m on tonight, I’m on the stage
Just one more, lovin’ you all070 Shake – “Neo Surf”
