The Niceguys Start The Year Off With The Release Of An Ode To Celebration And Reflection
As we reflect on the highs and lows of the past year, The Niceguys' are treating fans with the latest single "Toast," as well as some fresh artwork courtesy of JaQ DuTcH , from their debut album The Show, just in time to celebrate the New Year. "The crux of this whole song is celebration," reveals Yves Saint, the rapper of the group. "It's looking back on your life honestly and truly being thankful for what you have now."
The bluesy, horn heavy beat captures the essence of the lyrics creating a backdrop of triumph and achievement. The lyrics are inspirational and reflect on the early success of the group while paying homage to the struggles endured to get to where they are. "And I appreciate the love, cause I felt the hate/ And I appreciate the hugs, cause I felt the scrapes," Yves Saint rhymes. "Always remember to count your blessings, celebrate life, enjoy your youth, and make the most of the time you have on this earth," states Free, one-half of the group's producer core (along with Christoph). The Niceguys just wrapped a shoot for the official music video for "Toast," which will drop in the coming weeks.
