With a hypnotizing voice and a sultry-smooth way with words, Portland-based artist and producer Regular Marcus has the world at his fingertips. At only 21 years old, the young artist is being guided by one of pop music's most reputable tastemakers, Felix Snow, as he ascends the climb to the top. "Once" opens the pathways for Regular Marcus as his first release with production credits, and guides our way into his ethereal soundscape.
Opening with shimmering melodies and a space-y synth-infused lullaby, "Once" is the soulful pastel-tinged reverie we've been dreaming of. Alluring in its curation of sounds and evocative lyrics, Regular Marcus' voice is highlighted as the centrepiece of the track, leaving little to no imagination as we're swept along in the heartfelt narrative he weaves; the genuine heartbreak and earnestness is vividly heard in the track – implying the deeply personal nature of the song. Regular Marcus' unabridged passion is proof in "Once" and EARMILK looks forward to his future songs to come.
