Mesmerizing. The only word to accurately describe Two Feet’s new single “BBY.” Two Feet, born as Zachary “Bill” Dess, is a singer, songwriter, and producer hailing from the streets of Harlem, New York, is proving there is no limit to combining genres you wouldn’t even think of fusing together. The multi-instrumentalist is without a doubt killing the game.
After years of local jazz and blues ensembles, Dess decided he needed more. That more arrived in the form of his breakout single “Go Fuck Yourself.” The hit single would be followed-up by 2018’s A 20 Something F*CK. Since that release, he has caught the attention of millions of fans, accumulating over one billion streams across all platforms. In 2019, he performed all across the board, making appearances opening up for Panic! At The Disco, playing globally, and performing on The Late Night Show with Stephan Colbert. Just when you think he couldn’t top his recent series of successes, Two Feet blesses us with this prodigious new single “BBY.”
The hard-hitting bass ignites the song, pounding at the core of your chest like your heart is about to jump right out. When the guitar jumps in, I imagine myself riding a motorcycle down the 101, cigarette in mouth, trouble not long behind. The song takes a turn about thirty seconds in when you hear his subtle vocals echo, “Tell me what you want, what you need from me baby.” The build-up puts you into a trance of imaginary state, shifting you through the waves of a crazy lucid dream. Two Feet spoke further on “BBY,” sharing,
“‘BBY’ is one of my favorite songs off my upcoming album and is one of my first tracks written ‘Live.’ It was reconstructed and re-arranged almost 20 times. I would test it in front of a live audience and edit it after for better results. The current live version I play in my sets is actually still different from this release, but a song can’t stay alive forever. Sometimes you have to put a stamp on it and say it’s done.”
The song takes you through a berserk trip, putting imagery in your head you’d only get when you’re hallucinating. The uniqueness of this song not only gets you moving but it also gives you this urge to seize the day. Get your morning started with this song, and I promise you’ll be ready to take on anything that comes your way.
