Nick Hakim is one of those artists whose music sounds both fresh and timeless. It’s an impressive dichotomy that he cultivates on “Bet She Looks Like You,” the lead single off his forthcoming LP Green Twins. The song is a dreamy, somewhat vague love ballad that draws in listeners with Hakim’s airy production and crooning vocals. He bares his soul throughout while only giving partial hints at his inspirations, evidenced most with the line, “If there’s a god, I wonder what she looks like / I bet she looks like you.” With its slick composition and scorching yet smooth vocals, the song proves why Hakim has started gaining recognition and sets the stage for a strong debut album.
