Filter Alternative: Newcomer future-pop duo MADANII & LLUCID‘s newest single “Dominvs” is again characterized by front woman, MADANII’s unique, beat-focused vocals reminiscent of 90’s RnB favorite, Aaliyah, and paired with modern, Sampha-like production from LLUCID. While the upcoming second EP as a whole takes on a rather bright, up-beat mood, this particular track tackles a heavier topic.
“Dominvs” talks about rebelling against domination, or a system that leaves you no room to be yourself. It’s about trying to fulfill expectations and be “good,” but finding out that this leads you only to fade. While the lyrics center on feelings of oppression, the duo allowed themselves some freedom in production in that they experimented more than unusual and in some ways stepped away from their comfort zone.
