Sonically, the track finds a harmonious middle ground between the energetic influence of pop and the counterculture feeling of indie. Awash with soothing guitar riffs and tones of nostalgia, Deniz emphasises how love can find anyone in its own mysterious ways while developing his uptempo and euphoric sound.
The Houston artist was on track to become a professional footballer before a career-changing injury saw him switch lanes to pursue a new path in music. Paying respect to his Turkish heritage with a refreshing multi-cultural sound, Deniz’s vibrant melodies course the veins of his new offering as he details the story of unlikely lovers finding happiness through each other’s quirks, imperfections and eccentricities.
Deniz pledges to donate 100% of the track’s revenue to families suffering from the recent collapse of a condominium tower in Miami, Florida, which has been labelled as one of the deadliest structural building failures in American history. Working with supportsurfside.org, the singer hopes his music can help those in need, donating 100% of the first quarter streams on “Fool Like Me” to the cause.
