Carlow-based music producer-songwriter Hawk Jupiter and Dublin-based R&B singer-songwriter Zeinab have teamed up to release a captivating new sun-drenched single, ‘Oasis’ which will be released on June 25th 2021.
The summer-inspired collaboration features lush synths, layered vocal textures and a funk-filled bassline that set the scene for a mesmerising vocal performance from Zeinab.
Produced by Hawk Jupiter, the song is a co-write between Eoin “Hawk Jupiter” Mulvihill, GRAMMY-nominated Philadelphia-based songwriter Kristal Oliver and Zeinab.
“When Eoin approached me with the song, what captured my attention was the refreshing exotic melody, combined with lustful lyrics, which gives the sensation of an intense burgeoning romance,” says Zeinab. “It’s intoxicating, mysterious and soulful tone is what hopefully draws listeners’ attention.“
“When I was looking for an artist to collaborate on this song with, I knew Zeinab would be just perfect,” mentioned Eoin. “Her voice has such a pure yet soulful tone, it glides effortlessly from range to range, complementing and enhancing the soundscape of the song. It sounds so at home with the funk-filled bass, and the three-part harmonies bring it to a whole new level.“
The pair have collaborated on a vibrant video inspired by the natural elements of a desert oasis. Recorded, produced and directed by Eoin with a captivating performance by Zeinab, the video was shot in a pop-up studio in Ireland that Eoin custom-built to re-create an oasis environment. For the production, the pair collaborated with Galway based designer Virtue Shine – owner of Emerald and Wax, who’s Ghanaian-print kimonos and striking accessories bring added vibrancy and colour to the video.
Zeinab is a Dublin born, Soul/R&B singer-songwriter who takes inspiration from legends such as Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday. She has recently featured on the Hot Press ‘Young and Emerging’ series. This track follows the release of recent acclaimed single ‘Forever’.
