Oscar Ortiz sends us a true story message on a stunningly pure lo-fi beat that is sure to make you think about what love really means to you on ‘Pressure‘ (ft. Rohit Kumar).
The Riverbank, California singer-songwriter is a deep soul who has made a highly self-aware song about the current strains of being told he is loved, when he feels it might be too soon. Sometimes things just need to take their course without extra burdens being put on your shoulders, especially during this current pandemic that has all of our heads spinning with frustration.
Their voices tell the message we need to hear. They want to love but need time to process this information and its come too soon and they want to it mean something special, not hollow words that don’t really mean it.
With a laid-back style, this is a song to fully immerse into as it touches on societies current fabric. The ends are a bit worn and we need to good role models when it comes to love, as some people do it for the wrong reasons, especially when they have nothing to lose or all to gain.
‘Pressure‘ (ft. Rohit Kumar) from Californian artist Oscar Ortiz is that track you put on when you are in a reflective mood. Perhaps you have been hurt before and don’t believe in love anymore or think that they said those magic words a bit too quickly.
Ultimately, when you are in love, it has to come from both sides at the same time, otherwise the pressure on the other person can become too much to consume. This is something that needs to come naturally and with that genuine feel that makes it extra special inside your beating heart.
