Hit that play button to deep dive into the music! You might have just found your newest playlist addition!

HEGAZY is a New York–based duo featuring Egyptian-Italian twin sisters Leila and Omnia Hegazy. After parallel careers as solo artists, Leila, a vocally-driven R&B singer and Omnia, an outspoken pop-rock artist, blend together in a genre-bending pop/soul/rock vibe similar to the likes of Lianne La Havas, Emily King, Gary Clark Jr., and Alabama Shakes. The results: infectious pop melodies, soulful vocal harmonies, and heartfelt, unapologetic lyrics.

As this genuinely motivating, refreshing, and purposeful new electro-pop single “Oil and Water” from HEGAZY reaches the scene, creative production and robust sound design combine with firmly planted objectives to create something extraordinary.

“Oil and Water” builds up from modest, minimalist beginnings through several levels of cinematic intricacy and ambiance, ultimately immersing and engrossing listeners from start to finish in this surprising world of sounds.

The multi-layered sounds and moments that comprise this record are rather refreshing in terms of production.

Smooth tone, gentle vibrato, attractive octave range, and a consistent flowy soulful RnB instrumental make HEGAZY “Oil and Water,” a Contemporary / RnB masterpiece that also offers a diverse production to keep things soulful, vulnerable, and emotional.

“Oil and Water” is something different coming from HEGAZY corner, fusing together a catchy soundscape with theatrical story-telling origins and a blissfully soulful RnB vocal – the result is something that feels like rhyme and ultimately paves the way for a more creative, sensitive, and immersive RnB realm of tomorrow.

The effect of “Oil and Water” is to draw the listener’s attention to the soft and soulful rhythm and…of course, HEGAZY’s vocals in the background. Or, more precisely, the intimacy of the lyrics — there’s a wide range of them on display. 

HEGAZY creates an arrangement with a lot of ebbs and flow, much like the action of waves lapping on a beach, which is quite beautiful, thanks to the extensive use of reverb and delay. As a result, there is a sense of sumptuous richness throughout.

As a result of the overall mood shift of Oil and Water, the audience’s spirits are lifted as a result. It is only a brief moment, but the swagger and empowerment of the lyrical passages are swiftly restored, and we begin to connect with the bold and beautiful undertones that run throughout this song.“Oil and Water” sheds new light on the artist, striking a chord with spectators because of its transparency, fragility, purity, and the powerful artistic thread that runs through the work.
