Arty pays tribute to Avicii on ‘Tim’
The dance music world is still mourning the loss of one of its great talents. With Avicii‘s death still recent on many minds, some of his contemporaries are continuing to pay tribute to the late electronic music industry icon. This includes Arty, an artist whose career began around the same time as Avicii and who also has him to thank for his help in opening the door for future dance-pop crossover.
Interestingly enough, Arty has returned to the piano-driven sound that defined Avicii’s groundbreaking career, in his own innovative way, to pay homage to his life and legacy. Arty’s music of the early 2010’s also employed a similar sentiment, and it’s that talent with piano chords that helped his own career take off on “Kate” and “Rebound,” and now for a friend, aptly titled “Tim.” Euphoric, uplifting and expansive, “Tim” conveys passion through piano and ethereal vocals. It hits home, acknowledging Avicii’s sound and impact on dance music at large through its sound and nod to its inspiration.
