Previously based in Tuscon, AZ but now flourishing in the NYC music scene, singer-songwriter David D’Alessio has just released a brand new single – and it could easily be the song of the summer. His track Nowhere Else (I Wanna Be) is everything you want in a fun-loving, carefree, summery track.
Nowhere Else (I Wanna Be) grabs the listener within the first three seconds – a bonafide sign of a track with “hit potential”. The three percussive hits, the light guitar, the “can you turn me up?” from David – you just know a good time is brewing beyond this introduction. And the track wholeheartedly delivers. It’s a slow and deliberate build beyond the addition of David’s vocals (his clarity and control are giving “Michael Buble if he sang pop music” vibes), adding one new element at a time until we’re fully immersed in a world of high energy, vibrant, modern pop.
Lyrically David has captured the absolute essence of summer in each individual line. He’s descriptive enough to paint most of the warm and welcoming picture for you, but leaves just enough room for you to fill in your own summer memories to complete the image: “Salty lips and a Corona with a fresh lime, California girls be bringing out that sunshine, I never wanna leave”
Even if today’s pop music is just a guilty pleasure for you, this single is well worth the indulgence. In this release by David D’Alessio, there is substance beyond the catchiness and a lighthearted summery feeling that is truly addictive. It’s a perfect fit for nearly every summer playlist. Whether you’re spending late nights on the beach or just driving around with the windows down, Nowhere Else (I Wanna Be) will make the perfect soundtrack.
