Grammy-nominated producer/creator boyband has released a dopamine-inducing new single “tattoo.” Taken from his debut project alone in a boyband, out July 17 on Dirty Hit, “tattoo” details boyband’s inherent aptitude for smudging the lines of genre. Listen to the song now below.
The new single establishes a deliberate blueprint for diversity in boyband’s music, joining his previously released tracks from the forthcoming project including “realtree” and “death note,” fueled by adrenaline-charged guitar riffs from Billy Martin of Good Charlotte. Throughout the course of the forthcoming 10-track project, boyband uses his precision and hyper-focused attention to entangle the intricacies of hip hop, pop punk, and indie, managing to even invoke the youthful nostalgia of the 90’s midwestern emo scene into the mix by featuring indie-rock royalty Mike Kinsella of American Football on the project’s unreleased opener, “big face.”
Through his hard work and determination, the Jacksonville, FL native has received a Grammy-nomination for his fingerprint on Lil Nas X’s critically lauded album, 7, has garnered media praise from Alternative Press, Complex, Lyrical Lemonade, Ones To Watch, and DuJour, and has aided Young Thug and Gunna in their rise to stardom. Using the same white-knuckle willpower and a blue-collar work ethic that helped establish his reputation as one of Los Angeles’ most sought-after producers, with the hot production collective Internet Money, boyband has promised proficiency on alone in a boyband. Every detail, from the sparkling-pop hooks to the jangly, college-quad indie-rock vibes have been meticulously calculated to create his intricate debut.
