Eyes Lock For The First Time: Flow-Key, Sappho and Daydreamer bring that South African energy to life on ‘Talowame’

Produced by Daydreamer and powered by indie label Third World Order, Flow-Key is in top form with a quality new single about being free called ‘Talowame‘ (feat. Sappho).

Flow-Key and Sappho are two promising South Africa-based indie singers/rappers. They are joined by experienced producer Daydreamer, on a tremendously enjoyable track that feels rather special due to its authentic vibe and joyful atmosphere.

Talowame is a neologism. The crew made it up to encapsulate the concept of “experiencing ultimate freedom” or simply put “to be free.” ~ Daydreamer

This is the story about meeting someone who you lock eyes with quickly. You smile at each other and you just know that the energy is just right, as you are clearly meant for each other.

Made with a beach freshness and featuring some catchy Amapiano (a style of house music that emerged in South Africa in 2012) with Kris Swartbooi (a.k.a “Krissidance”) and Alex Karantges (a.k.a “Piros”), at the helm, this is a head-bobbing track you just can’t help but love.

Produced, recorded and released independently by young creatives from the friendly city of Gqeberha/Port Elizabeth, South Africa. The song was released with a music video also made by the artists of the song with the assistance from fellow young aspiring creatives of the bay.” ~ Daydreamer

Talowame‘ from Flow-Key (feat. Sappho), is a smooth energy release which is a bright experience to savor from one of the more genuine areas in the world you will ever visit. Made with a pure innocent vibe, local dancing at its best, and a breathtaking beat which will take you to happy places, this is one of the most freedom-inducing tracks you will hear all year.
