With origins stemming from the Brew City Brand located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Felix Ames, has dropped a one of a kind gem. Titled “Spf,” which seems to be a call to the nearing wild spring/summer energy. Ames’ developed his own sound being an independent artist, creating a vibe that is an all in one evolving energy, with determination to come out at the end of the year as an emerging artist in the scene. The beginning of 2022 has been a whirlwind with Ames, dropping two singles in back to back months having each song compliment the previous while holding its own unique groove. With these tracks he has slowly built a following over tiktok retaining over 121 thousand followers and a total of 1.5 million likes.
“Spf” is a track for the new school era with heavy sonics the oldies once carried, but to be honest, Ames engulfs a retro but modern aesthetic as a whole. Instead of recycling or repurposing the same lyrics, he uses more storytelling as a prominent strength in his songs, forging his left over feelings from his summer love. Knowing that everything comes to an end, he’s left to ponder how his heart will ever heal from this. Filled with brass elements that evoke vivid jazzy vibes, refreshing listeners with colorful blends and rugged baritone tones. It makes me want to hop in the car and drive with no real destination, just vibe especially with spring and summer time on the way. After the first play, you will definitely be adding it to any one of your favorite playlist. Be on the lookout for Felix Ames as the year progresses, because I have a feeling more of these groovy tunes will be showcased, as he continues to explore how deep in his bag he can get. If you haven’t already, go ahead and stream Felix Ames “Spf” on all streaming platforms and keep an eye out for new releases.
