New Jersey native Austin Underwood is an emerging act ready to break through the industry walls with his brand of emotion-filled and self-reflective music. Using music as an outlet away from his personal struggles, he hopes to be a successful act beyond monetary reasons as he lends his voice to the ones that are not spoken for. The hard-working act has quite a number of singles under his belt and his recent release “Nosferatu” gets the visual treatment that showcases both Underwood’s emo R&B styles and performance skills.
Backed by a production fusing r&b/pop and a tinge of trap elements, Underwood permeates the track with his laidback layered melodies and somewhat carefree flow. The record is a lovelorn song that sees Underwood trying to seduce a girl he just met with lines like “I don’t bite, I’m a vampire yeah yeah/ I won’t hurt you cos you’re so nice/I need just one night to make you fall for me.“
The KWAS directed visual focuses on Underwood and gives the viewers a plethora of performance shots. The cut scenes are well-paced and set pieces are reminiscent of early 90s rock videos. What more can I say, quite nostalgic and straight to the point.
