Rising singer Sebastian Mikael has returned with “Overgold,” his first offering of the year.
Capturing a romanticized mix of soul and funk, Mikael sings about escaping to paradise with a precious potential. He doesn’t want to blow his shot, handling his pursuit to make a move with care. But Mikael is up to the challenge to go after this particular person before the hourglass runs out.
“How ’bout you and me / Go some place we’ve never seen / Just to live out all our dreams / Where we gettin’ everything,” Mikael sings.
“Overgold” is the first single from Mikael’s forthcoming EP, Phileo, due out Oct. 14. The new set takes its name from a Greek term that defines an emotional attachment that transcends close friendships.
“I wanted to talk about love not in a romantic aspect or in a cliche way, but more as love being a foundation for who we are and as a lifestyle. When we move in love, we’re more powerful because God is Love,” Mikael explains.
In August 2020, Mikael shared the song “Exit.” It was accompanied by a video directed by Nathan R. Smith and featured a few animated friends. The song reached No. 13 on Billboard’s Adult R&B Airplay chart.
