If you paid attention to the music scene back in 2020, then odds are, you know the name Khamari. It truly felt like the Los Angeles based, Dorchester raised artist came out of nowhere. With songs like “The Heat” & “Jealous”, Khamari quickly solidified himself as one of the most promising acts to come out of the pandemic. After some time away from releasing music, the up and comer makes his return with one of the best songs that you will hear all week. The brand new offering called, “Doctor, My Eyes” shows us a side of Khamari that bleeds a certain type of transparency that is missing in music these days. I was able to grab a quote about the song, and he explained:
‘Doctor, My Eyes’ is about looking for perspective. When I wrote it I had moved from Boston to LA and was trying to make sense of my life. A lot of things were shifting too fast to keep up with, but things I hoped would change stayed the same. I got put on to this Jackson Browne record, and the story resonated with me. That’s where I got the title. It’s about him being desperate to make any sense of his life and experiences. Then a friend played me Incubus, the song ‘Mexico’. I knew I wanted to lay out these thoughts over a guitar that intimate. In the outro my grandfather is the voice that gives me advice because he’s always been an anchor for me.
From the moment I turned this track on, it was evident that Khamari’s music is about to take us on a rollercoaster of emotions with the songs he’s about to release. “Doctor, My Eyes” might just be my favorite song by him and that’s thanks to his superb vocal stylings and the dynamic production that’s present within it.
