small dogs, Kelly Vargas – vieques and dark rum | Getaway
His discography dating back only for a couple of years, singer-songwriter and music producer small dogs has begun ascending up the indie pop ladder with his fourth single.
In his recent collaboration with Costa Rican-American artist Kelly Vargas, the artist returns from some of his earlier stuff like miami and dar es salaam with his fresh number vieques and dark rum. The three-minute moody soul-inspired indie pop number hooks the listener in with the sweltering vocal performances that crest and trough, assisted with the characteristic indie pop compressed drum and bass. In its most bare essence, vieques and dark rum offers the emotional tone of a getaway track — laden with a near-adolescent innocence to the lovesick lyricism, the downtempo percussive backbone and sultry implications.
Whether it be for an evening drink beside a fire in the tropical Caribbean or inside an urban club ecosystem, the track fits abundantly well into a cohesive vibe sure to get people swaying. Despite a speedy three minutes, the track draws to a close with a bubblegum pop-inspired John Mayer-style electric guitar hook — and best be assured, you’re going to have a lot of requests coming for more from small dogs’ discography.
