The Image / OKAY: An LA Story [EP]

Masked duo The Image has been slowly infiltrating the scene ever since their debut release “Believe In Me” caught fire back in July of last year.  “Believe In Me” quickly found its way onto Spotify’s Fresh Finds playlist sitting boldly in the #1 spot and success around the track continued.  After peaking at #32 on SoundCloud’s Top 50 US charts and amassing over 3M streams, The Image dropped their infectious follow up “Beaujolais” a bouncy and incredibly catchy bop that turned more heads especially after the song landed at #6 on Apple Music’s Hot Tracks and continued to catch the attention of the curators over at Spotify and SoundCloud. 

Aside from their music creating a unique community across streaming platforms, The Image (comprised of producers Watrcup and Franskiiz) have been cultivating a strong fanbase across outlets such as YouTube, TikTok, and Instagram.  Their masked identities have lured curiosity around the brand and their upbeat and positive personalities have combined to create an energetic, engaging assortment of content that has kept audiences hanging around and craving more tunes. The success of “Believe In Me” and “Beaujolais” across platforms and the demand from audiences enticed the duo to bestow a much needed 7 piece offering.  The Image’s Debut Album “OKAY: An LA Story” pays homage to their West Coast residency as well as showcases the diversity of their creativity. 

The EP includes 2021 singles “Every Woman” and “Morning Prayer” and features bold pop melodies blended with boisterous hip-hop rhymes, electronic waves, R&B grooves and cinematic flourishes. The EP is a perfect introduction to The Image’s abilities to transcend all genres of music – creating a sound that makes you move to every bass drop, sing along to every lyric, and click rewind because you just can’t get enough. I am a huge fan of these guys and really look forward to seeing what they continue create here in 2021 – be sure to give The Image and their debut EP “OKAY: An LA Story” a listen via the link below.  xx
