MNA Matthew Nino Azcuy - "D List"

MUSIC FARMER 5 - Review by Adam Jones

A Sonic Journey from Dreams to Destiny

In the vast and ever-shifting expanse of contemporary music, discovering a song that simultaneously feels like a breath of fresh air and a nod to nostalgic rhythms is a true rarity. "D List" by MNA (Matthew Nino Azcuy) is precisely that - a piece that not only ensnares the senses with its auditory splendor but also presents a compelling tale of ambition, uncertainty, and the unyielding quest for excellence.


From the initial haunting arpeggiations of the guitar that introduces "D List," listeners are instantly transported to a realm that feels otherworldly—imbued with the warmth of celestial amber hues. This isn't merely music; it's an ambiance, a state of being, an essence that's both ethereal and tangible. As MNA's vocals merge with the robust backdrop of trap drums, the track ascends to a new level. His voice, an impeccable fusion of Post Malone's heartfelt fervor and the edgy dynamism of Twenty One Pilots, demands attention. It's elegant yet forceful, a dichotomy MNA navigates with ease.


Encircling MNA's voice is a mesmerizing concoction of rhythm, texture, and finesse that encourages listeners to both nod to the beat and sway gently. The melody lingers, a memorable tune that clings to the mind long after the music fades, while the orchestration forms the perfect canvas for MNA's lyrical artistry.


MNA's "D List" transcends the bounds of mere musical composition; it's a journey from youth to maturity, laden with doubts, feelings, and the hurdles of the current music scene. The chorus, relatable and raw, speaks to the age-old struggle of aiming for the stars amidst adversity. MNA's declaration is resolute: he will not be sidelined, destined for oblivion. This determination, coupled with his genuine, unguarded expression, elevates the song from an auditory delight to an emotional voyage.
