Swizl Jager - Single/Video Review: Nanny Pia

06 Jan 2023 // A review by Ben Ruegg

The new track from Swizl Jager, Nanny Pia, is a fantastic new track that will have your head bobbing in a humble way. It's got a great vibe that will have you hitting that repeat button.

From the get go, the hook of the song is catchy and will have you get stuck in your head. “Even when it’s raining, you are my sunny day, And even if the sun don’t shine, I know that everything’s ok”. Featuring his nephews and nieces who were involved with both the music video and the music itself, Swizl describes this whole project as a whanau effort.

Electric piano gently lays across a soft beat. It is the sort of beat you can vibe to which is perfect as in this case the song is dedicated to his grandmother. “The second verse is about no matter what I go through in life, I know that she’s always there with me even though she’s not physically here."

Other than the lyrics in the intro and outro, the whole song is completely in Te Reo. Swizl explained to Te Ao Maori News, “I enlisted the help of my bro Raniera, who translated the song, and then it ended up getting funding from Te Mangai Paho for the song and the video.”

The lyric video is wonderfully illustrated and captures the feel of the song perfectly.

Swizl has been around for a long time in the NZ Music scene, having started off in nu-metal and hardcore bands, yet his love for hip-hop is real and true as is shown here in this new track which you should be sure to add to your playlists over the summer and beyond.

About Swizl Jager

Swizl Jager - an Auckland based emcee originally from Papamoa. He started off in nu metal and hardcore bands, but always had a love for hip-hop.

After winning a trip to Las Vegas by writing, directing, and editing a music video for a Burgerfuel competition (all in the span of 2 days), he decided it was time to take things more seriously, planning his assault on the world slowly and carefully.

2012 saw the emergence of Swizl Jager as a force to be reckoned with, writing songs and shooting music videos, as well as collaborating with other up and coming Kiwi artists. Now, it's all go, playing shows all over NZ & Australia.

28 Feb 2023 // by Ben Ruegg
Frontier are a passionate and energetic Pop Punk and Easycore four piece band from Christchurch, New Zealand. Their new release, Star Walkin', is driven by a huge intro that quickly moves into what we would expect from Pop/Punk, this song rocks.
Dilz - Single/Video Review: I've Been 2
05 Dec 2022 // by Ben Ruegg
Dilz' new track I've Been 2 hits hard. With a huge bass sound that doesn't overwhelm as much as it just makes you aware of its power, paired with the chimes as a hook and a powerful trap beat, I would say that this Dilz track is a statement about where he has come from and where he is now.

14 Oct 2022 // by Ben Ruegg
The new single from Teazse, an independent rap artist from Auckland, brings a lot of what people like about modern hip hop and brings it into his own world, while still acknowledging the sound of those that came before. For example, the sampled pitched voice works well when used well, and it's done here well.
