Adrian Dzvuke Releases His Debut Project "Phone Me When You Lonely"


Adrian Dzvuke has finally given the world a complete body of work. The artist has released his debut project, an EP titled Phone Me When You Lonely and it's certainly a project that's well thought out. The EP has a little bit of everything in terms of sound and Adrian brings it altogether in his lyricism and his message centred around self worth & always carrying on. The project features a touch of hiphop, indie rock, some rnb but it has hard core of pop around it's influences.



The artist firmly announced himself to the world in 2020 with his single "Bad Like Riri" which was more Afrobeats in feel and gave him his best success yet. And for a moment afterwards it seemed like he would firmly establish himself in the genre but he's an artist ever adapting to the inspiration from the world.


Adrian has won multiple awards at the Western Australia Music Awards and "Darling" the first single from his first EP achieved his highest streaming numbers yet. Since he began releasing music in 2019, Adrian has refused to be boxed in. He walks his own parts and his music is a part of him. Darling was inspired simply by him having fascination with the word and Red Wine was a product of him channeling the emotions brought about by the first lockdown in 2020.


Phone Me When You Lonely is definitely one to add to your playlist. From the Afrobeats & rnb vibes on the title track to the sounds of Heartbreaker and Better. The 8 track project is beautiful body of sound and through the multiple influences you can see Adrian's identity. In an interview Adrian revealed that the immigration from Zimbabwe to Australia had played a part in how he expresses himself in his music:


I always knew I wanted to showcase all versions of myself in my first project. Being raised in Zimbabwe and moving to Australia at age 12 was quite a significant time in my life as I now realise how that influenced me as an artist. I always had a hard time fitting into specific groups all through primary school and high school because I was friends with everyone.


 
Being an African immigrant people would also expect me to act a certain way or be friends with certain people. I never understood this and I guess I've always made efforts to make sure everyone around me felt included and tried my best to build bridges between friendship groups. I say all this because, now that I look back, I realise that this EP is exactly that. It's music that travels in different worlds without feeling the need to be anything but itself.
