Pete Santos – “Odd Nights”
You may note a certain worldliness about Pete Santos’ music, and you would be correct. It comes courtesy of his travels growing up as an Air Force brat. So, although he can list the likes of ODB, Kanye, Outkast, Lecrae and De La Soul as influences, the singer/songwriter and emcee has also absorbed the sounds and cultures of the many places he has lived and travelled to. Currently a resident of Finland, Santos still has his sights set on making his mark in the music game stateside and his releases to date include an EP in March 2017 entitled “Our Lives Begin” and recently in August a single titled, “Last Night People”, available on all the DSP’s.
Today’s offering, “Odd Nights”, is a trappish song about playing video games. The song embodies a scene that many video game players go through, especially when playing video games online. In the chorus Pete Santos says, ‘we go live’, which is the monumental moment when the player/s can compete. The song is the first single of four coming off of Santos’ upcoming album, “Paint the Picture”, expected next spring. Check out the video for “Odd Nights” below.
