The new single from Los Angeles-based R&B meets pop artist Darius Martin, 'Like We Used To Before' is characterized by his expansive atmospherics and undeniably infectious hooks. The singer-songwriter and producer pioneers expansive alt R&B music complete with pop-laced hooks and island-drenched soundscapes.

Writing about the beauty and struggles found in life, Martin aims to connect with his listeners on a deep level, pouring his own emotions and autobiographical experiences into every release. 'Like We Used To Before' celebrates the timelessness of being in love as Martin reminisces on the beauty of a present moment shared with his sweetheart.

Filled with dreamlike notes of guitar and percussion, 'Like We Used To Before' draws you in with unbridled emotion. Darius Martin confronts his past and makes peace with himself in this powerful ode to the serendipitous nature of love.

Born in El Paso, Texas, Darius Martin spent his childhood in Alamogordo, New Mexico where he took influence from the vastness of the desert. Relocating to Southern California in high school, Martin was an active and serious athlete in his teenage years. Fate though, had a different plan, and when a serious illness sidelined Martin, he began channeling his time into discovering his new passion for music. Influenced by the likes of Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson and Marvin Gaye, Martin began experimenting with different sounds and genres aiming to achieve a sound that is fresh as it is timeless.

Crafting music that deeply resonates with his listeners, Darius Martin takes inspiration from real-life experiences and contrasting perspectives to highlight “the good, bad, and in between. I want real-life emotions and feelings to be poured out into my music.”
