Rising pop/R&B artist Geoff Ong brings forth his latest single 'Save Me The Weekend', a pristine pop banger, centered on the euphoric push and pull of newfound love. Ong’s new track is out now, released independently via DRM NZ.
The kiwi singer-songwriter’s slick R&B vocals ride high above undeniably infectious melodies, a bed of fuzzed out, squared basslines and glimmering synthesizers. An intelligent pop song for a modern audience with some old school flavour, 'Save Me The Weekend' cuts straight to the feeling with irresistible danceability.
2018 saw the release of Ong’s previous singles 'Fingerprints' and 'Don't Know You No More', which launched him into the Official NZ Music Charts with multiple entries. Ong shows no signs of slowing down in 2019, with 'Save Me The Weekend' showcasing true pop finesse, underpinned by Ong's distinct approach to pop music.
Often describing himself as a "pop star for dorks", Geoff Ong is intentional in his delivery of emotionally authentic and accessible music for the millennial generation. Ong shares: “...though the music I make is within the mainstream, pop sphere, I feel like I can’t relate to a lot of the people making that kind of music… so I want to bring a bit of authenticity and relatability back into pop music.”
As Muzic.net.nz put it, Geoff Ong’s music is “the kind of pop that makes you automatically want to get a groove on, it is so darn happy sounding.”
