Kevin Atwater - Freckles


August 14, 2020

This track has something magical. And we can't really tell if it's thanks to Kevin's incredible voice or thanks to its simple yet so effective production. In any case, Kevin's voice is comfortable in all tones. He could sing whatever he wants! The lyrics are heartfelt, perfectly fluid, and are sometimes delivered with impressive speed. The melody is more than catchy, and we can only adhere to the message of generosity of this new talent. Kevin is one of those artists who doesn't care about other people's eyes. And he is absolutely right. He expresses himself with sincerity in his music, his passion takes over, and that's all that matters. An authentic artist, of which it is the first single (hard to believe, as the quality is there). We can't wait to find out more. We sincerely wish him that his music goes as viral as his videos on TikTok. About videos, the lyric video attached was made by Kevin, all by himself. Congrats for being so creative!

Lyrics :

i was on the way back running from a ghost that haunts me in my head
you can always tell when I get that look in my eyes
we’re sitting in the park on a rock watching two dogs fight it out over nothing
we didn’t have anything to say but i didn’t really mind

summer’s on its way in, talking in an accent just to make you laugh
freckles coming out and you’re drawing on them making a map
we’re sitting on your bed talking about your favorite book trying to see if you really know italian
you called me by your name but all it did was make me laugh

so tell me something
‘cause you’re becoming
the only one i want to see
i don’t want to force it out
or put pressure down
about what you really want from me
never given it much thought
but now I can’t help thinking ‘bout
the fact that I just wanna be
the only one who touches you at night
and if you cannot give me that
then baby give me nothing
give me nothing
give me nothing babe

never felt so open listening to joni mitchell in the evening
you had never heard of her which made you feel insecure for no reason
and I would never say it out loud
but i’ve rarely felt important till now
i’m used to boys taking me for granted

so tell me something
‘cause you’re becoming
the only one i want to see
i don’t want to force it out
or put pressure down
about what you really want from me
never given it much thought
but now I can’t help thinking ‘bout
the fact that I just wanna be
the only one who shows you good music
and if you cannot give me that
then baby give me nothing
give me nothing
give me nothing baby

so tell me something
‘cause you’re becoming
the only one i want to see
i don’t want to force it out
or put pressure down
about what you really want from me

i’ve never given it much thought
but now I can’t help thinking ‘bout
the fact that I just wanna be
the only one who kisses you at night
and wakes up in the morning by your side
shows you all the songs he wrote about you
and if you can't give me that
then baby give me nothing
give me nothing
give me nothing baby

Kevin Atwater's point of view :

This is my first major song release. I am a member of the LGBTQ community, and I sing from an unafraid and distinctly queer perspective. I wrote this song about queer affection and longing, and tried to capture the uncertainty of gay love in the lyrics. I animated and edited the youtube music video that I plan to release along with the song. I am a TikTok personality, with over 200,000 followers and over 8 million views, and am trying to bring my passion for songwriting and music to my followers. I hope that my song comes across as authentic and true to gay love and wanting.
