Introducing a beautifully artistic, refreshingly interesting take on contemporary pop and visual imagery – On The Rise offers musical impact and emotional undertones united in one passionate, powerful single.
Bringing together the talents of Paul Natural and Dominic Augustin, On The Rise features striking production and uniquely expressive vocals and lyrics that weave an uncompromising web of intrigue around listeners.
Leading with a siren-like rhythm and contrasting wash of synth and bass, the single welcomes in the Dominic vocal early on, soaked in effects to meet the contemporary nature of the story and video, but still clearly detectable as genuine, emotive, and of recognisable qualities and tone.
Feeling all at once deeply personal and vastly relevant to us all, On The Rise progresses from dreamy verses to a heavy and immersive hook. The melody slowly but surely settles into your consciousness, and meanwhile the sheer energy and pulse of the soundscape connects with your body increasingly throughout this three minutes and nine seconds.
Then there’s the bridge, delicate and reflective, suddenly hopeful where melancholic angst once was.
Beautifully crafted, fascinating in writing and style, a bold, memorable introduction to the musical endeavours of Dominic Augustin – a runway model and founder and CEO of Nickoli August.
