DENM – Blow It Up (Review)

Huntington Beach, CA artist DENM teamed up with production songwriting team Rock Mafia on his new single “Blow It Up” and upcoming EP ‘Endless Summer’, which is being released on September 6th. Finding his feet in the music industry, the songwriter has been testing out the waters to find his ‘sound’, and ‘Blow It Up’ is simply his realest track yet. Strictly staying true to his roots, the quality in the new single is one to set DENM’s name firmly in the spotlight.

Initially written about DENM’s neighbours in Isla Vista being loud and wild, as the songwriting process progressed, DENM found himself writing more about growing up in his hometown San Diego. Showcasing that Southern California isn’t all roses and the ‘good life’, it can be tough. Throughout the number, we learn that even though it’s a hard place to live in sometimes, it’s one big party after all. Laid-back and with tons of swagger in it’s groove, the garage-pop artist has something to say in this number and he’s simply letting that steam off. He’s found his sound and it’s the simple things in the production, like the reggae instrumentation, that gives the track that extra flavouring that it needed. 

Score: 3.5/5
