'Take a Picture' is the most recent release from David Dallas off his new album The Rose Tint. It combines honest lyrics, his rapping talent and soulful singing in the chorus, with a solid hip hop beat in the background. It's easy to tell that David Dallas knows what he likes and what sound he wants to make. The sound is simplistic and straightforward, no awkward fusion or change in genres mid song. The best thing about David Dallas right now is that he is making music that is genuine and not trying too hard to be cutting edge.
The production is tight, the rhymes are well written the beat brings them all together in unison. Dallas drops the line “take a flick/before the world’s all up on this shit” basically utilizing pop culture for his shameless self promotion, smart man. Creating a buzz around the globe with samples being used by The Chemical Brothers and Kanye, if you get the chance to download The Rose Tint or at least 'Take a Picture' of David Dallas you better do it while you can.
