HEGAZY is an Egyptian-Italian twin sister duo (Leila and Omnia Hegazy) based in Staten Island, New York. Not too long ago, they released a jazzy neo-soul tune, entitled, “Maybe If We Try.”
HEGAZY – “Maybe If We Try” single
“Maybe you won’t ever be the king your mama said that you would be by now. ‘Cause every little dream was always easy to achieve until they stole your crown. We thought by 25 if we went flying through the sky that we would find ourselves. But so far there’s just you, you and me. I always thought that I would be an astronaut before I even turned 18. But all the stars have come and gone and I’ve been moving right along with gravity. ‘Cause, all we want is everything, but if we could have everything would we still dream. I’d still dream of you, you and me.” – lyrics
‘Maybe If We Try’ tells a heartfelt tale about an optimistic young woman who wants she and her partner to be the way they used to be when they first met. Apparently, they used to wake up in the morning wanting more than to just crawl in order to survive. Unfortunately, getting to that point – when they used to fly – seems damn near impossible. However, she still tells her companion, “I don’t know what the future’s gonna bring but all I know is that I want you to be there.”
‘Maybe If We Try’ contains a hopeful narrative and ear-pleasing vocals that will resonate well with fans of Corrine Bailey Rae, Emily King, and Charlotte Day Wilson. The likable tune possesses thudding drums and horn-laden instrumentation flavored with a jazzy neo-soul vibration. Furthermore, “Maybe If We Try” serves as a wonderful taste of what listeners can expect to hear from HEGAZY in the near future as they continue to release new music.
“When you tell me that it’s pouring, tell me how can you be sure before you’ve looked outside.”
“We hope this song is exactly the hopeful bop that you needed. After navigating a worldwide pandemic for years now, we can all use a little joy, and a reminder that better things are coming for all of us.” – HEGAZY explained
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 hybrid of pop, R&B/soul, and alternative rock. The results: infectious pop melodies, tight sister harmonies, atmospheric guitars, and heartfelt, unapologetic lyrics. Their recent influences include Emily King, Bruno Major, Alabama Shakes, and Gary Clark Jr.
“Everybody’s running but they wonder what they’re chasing. And nobody’s gonna win unless they found out that they’re racing to the sun.”
