Artist: Nirob Islam
Song: Busy Making Plans
Stands out: Beautiful voice, great vocal melody, production
If you like: Flume, Tove Lo, The Weeknd, Banks
We came across this song that just came out today and decided you absolutely had to know about it.
If you’re into producers like Flume, BJ Burton (Banks, Lizzo), and then you’ll probably really like this track. It’s modern alt-pop with large doses of hip-hop.
Nirob’s luscious vocals grace through the chorus with subtle yet incredibly exexcuted melodies. We are really excited about a potential music video for this song, hopefully he will make one!
One of the hardest things for me is to be honest about how I feel. I hate the feeling of being exposed and often tend to not talk about the issues occupying my mind. Not letting those thoughts out ends with you not being able to reach other people. You become distant and disconnected. Even if someone is sitting next to you it feels like they’re miles away, and after a while you start to forget why you feel the way you felt from the beginning. ‘Busy Making Plans’ is about pushing away your problems to a point where you feel so distant and disconnected from someone that it feels like they’re on the other side of the planet. Instead of trying to solve the issues you have, you make plans to avoid them.”
Having broken through into the industry under his writing pseudonym SHY Nodi, who has previously been credited on The Chainsmokers hit ‘All We Know’, NOTD’s ‘I Wanna Know’, and ‘The Ocean’ by Mike Perry and SHY Martin – which also went multi-platinum and was awarded Most Streamed Song at the Swedish Publishing Awards in 2016 – Nirob Islam is now firmly in the midst of forging a career all of his own as he returns with his latest single ‘Busy Making Plans’.
