A bold new talent from the beating heart of Melbourne, Keezz (pronounced Keys) first came into focus back in 2017 when inspirations such as The Weeknd, Allday, Juice WRLD and Frank Ocean allowed him to create music to show the world. Hailing from Melbourne, Australia, Keezz has developed a brilliant ability to combine pop, hip-hop and R&B into a unique hybrid sound.
His latest single, ‘I Don’t Wanna Die’ arrives as the second track of a new era, carving out a deep, honest, and meaningful path that acts as a true insight into his life. Blending dark and upbeat tracks, Keezz has always pushed boundaries and looked to change things up, and his new single does just that.
A modern pop track that features a range of orchestral instruments including the violin, cello, and viola, as well as an assortment of brass instruments that acts as a heroic feature to polarise the theme of the narrative, ‘I Don’t Wanna Die’ is a massive cut above your standard single. Mixed with vocal samples that set the tone of the track, it’s a fine maelstrom of smooth keys and synths that pan from left to right to get a full stereo image.
The track tells the story of a man who is stuck in the clutches of a woman, who doesn’t want him to succeed and would rather see him “dead” than be the man that the world wants him to be. Keezz sings about the man’s struggles being with her and how he doesn’t want to die as he has “the power of the gods”, that being success, happiness, and persistence. This is what Keezz wants to aspire to be in the music industry, he wants to find success through music and fulfil his audience, bringing them joy with every note.
A bold piece that is sure to launch Keezz onto the main stage, ‘I Don’t Wanna Die’ is available now on all major platforms. Tune in today, and make sure you follow him on his social media pages below, so you never miss a beat.
