Dende Navigates Love and Heartbreak on ''95 Civic' (LP)

By -
Dende has taken his artistry to another level on his latest LP, '95 Civic. The 12-track audio adventure is the ride of a lifetime. The album's central themes of love, heartbreak, and passion are all consistent throughout. Each track bleeds into the next with impeccable precision. Although the album is seemingly perfect sonically, Dende's self-aware lyricism showcases his flaws in abundance. The Texas-bred crooner uses his soulful southern church vocal to express his passion in each song. Following the light and positive energy from his latest EP, Before We Crash, '95 Civic is the perfect full-length juxtaposition. 

Dende's new album starts smoothly with "I Wrote You A Song." The stripped-back introduction is the perfect platform for the rising R&B star to showcase his vocal range. The stage was set for Dende to "Swerve" into his following Eimaral Sol-assisted single. Tracks like "Block Me" and "Lost" were solid padding ahead of the emotionally heavy album stand out, "Nightmares." Things pick back up on "Wish You Well," an exciting track that showcases his fellow CXR label mate, Chris Patrick. The talented duo always deliver on tracks together and have been making waves on the road supporting Patrick's Gang Activity Tour.

ARTIST QUOTE: "Releasing '95 Civic feels like the last thing I needed to do to move on to the next phase of my life. Although it's a sad project, the time it allowed me to spend with A&R Mizz and producer Billy Blunt is something I will never forget. This is our best work yet."

Dende has been going viral for his classic yet refreshing R&B sound. The album is exciting and full of highs, but none greater than "Part-Time Lover" featuring Lilly Aviana. Dende doesn't hold any emotions throughout the project. He explores various sounds and pushes himself to his creative limits with his long-time producer and friend, Billy Blunt. The singing tandem made a moment that will be hard to top in the future. One thing has become overwhelmingly clear for the fast-rising singer; he is here to stay.
