Take David Dallas’ track title with a grain of salt: if he really felt like one of the Gallaghers, he’d be bitter, quarrelsome and feeling superficially great from knocking down a Scarface-sized mountain of nose candy. But let’s not dwell on specifics. The New Zealand MC’s putting out “Feels Like Oasis” for the deluxe edition release of his exceptional EP, The Rose Tint. On the new record, Kid Daytona and Tayyib Ali tag along, as a loopy, string-infused beat carries the track. 808s skitter and kick, while Dallas, Daytona and Ali all drop bars that provide the perfect compliment to the original Rose Tint’s lyrical disposition.
The David’s deluxe edition arrives on North American shores on November 8. Acquaint yourself with the original (and free) Rose Tint here.
