Lonely Suburban Blackboy – [Myles Cameron]

By Nick Mueller // 23 May 2019

Making a very special return to our pages today, New York native Myles Cameron delivers his new, remarkable project titled Lonely Suburban Blackboy. This project follows the release of the three standout singles; “Picket Fences”, “Nothing Gold”, and “Yellow”. Lonely Suburban Blackboy can be simply described as a bond between his magnetic vocal deliveries and his close-to-heart songwriting. Quoted by Myles himself, “Lonely Suburban Blackboy is a character portrait. It’s based on two major themes; blackness in white spaces and warm colors and aesthetics. The process of writing was pretty difficult honestly. I had to do a lot of digging within myself and put some of my biggest insecurities and worst memories on the page. After having gone through that whole process though, I feel more confident and secure in myself than ever before.” I was very impressed with how raw and authentic this project was, for it was refreshing to feel as though I was experiencing what Myles had felt during those times. Furthermore, Myles will be playing a show in Brooklyn, New York on May 30th that will be centered around this project so make sure you check his socials for details. All in all, be sure to stream Lonely Suburban Blackboy …

As the anticipation built up since his last major release in June of 2018, Adrian’s fans have been patiently waiting for what Stresow describes to be “his most important body of work so far.” From songs “Be Safe Out There” to “This Time Around”, Adrian uses feelings and moments in his life to tell his story and depict his journey of growing and moving away from home. Throughout this project, Stresow delivers unstoppable melodies in tracks like “Us” and “Signs”, while also dropping eye-opening lyrics in tracks such as “Overthink” and “Process”. As many already know, Adrian has his hands on every track he releases, between the production, writing, and mixing; however, here Stresow teamed up with Noah Farhood on six of the records to finalize the album. As the support from fans continues to flow, I’m very certain that we will be seeing more comments such as “wow, I can connect to every song on here” and “Adrian you’re incredible, this is just what I needed.” Nonetheless, this is an album that you have …

By Nick Mueller // 17 May 2019

Making his Lyrical Lemonade debut today, 14-year-old lyricist Ray Emmanuel swiftly bodies his new self-produced and self-written track titled “Before I’m Gone…” Over a very friendly production, Ray speaks about his journey, goals, and what he expects his future to look like within the next few years. Throughout, Ray delivers powerful lyrics that hit on topics such as peace, love, and positivity; topics in which Ray has a passion for and a desire to spread to the world. After speaking with his team, I learned that “Before I’m Gone…” is in part a tribute to the late great Nipsey Hussle and also a message for everyone listening to take a step back, capture the moment, and accomplish whatever they set out for. To say the least, I am very impressed and excited to watch Ray’s continued growth and success as an artist, person, and influence to his fans.

Dead To You – [IRIS]

By Nick Mueller // 11 May 2019

Making her Lyrical Lemonade debut today, New Zealand based IRIS unleashes a new visual for her single titled “Dead To You”. The video consists of IRIS and her old lover in what seems to be a cabin isolated in the woods, while each scene shows IRIS being misunderstood and left ghosted. IRIS describes the feeling depicted throughout this video as “being dead in their lives and having to accept the sad truth that you have to leave certain people behind in order to fulfill your own needs and potential”, something we can all probably relate to. “Dead To You” was released as IRIS’ third official music video, but after speaking with her it became very evident that she’s just warming up. With “lots coming up” and “music dropping frequently that will be accompanied by videos”, the rising artist hopes to drop her debut album by this summer.

minimal – [ROLE MODEL]

By Nick Mueller // 8 May 2019

Making his debut to Lyrical Lemonade today as one of my favorite rising artists, ROLE MODEL delivers a very impressive visual for his recent single titled “minimal”. Fitting to say the least, the scenery throughout this film is kept very simple as ROLE MODEL finds himself laying on a bed in the middle of intensely vast plains. The young vocalist steps into an atmosphere full of loneliness and despair as he moves throughout the visual, depicting his own thoughts and creating a message for fans to lean on. Furthermore, ROLE MODEL showcases his ability to fabricate an extremely catchy melody while utilizing lyrics that fans can comfortably connect to. As ROLE MODEL continues to deliver exceptional records, I wouldn’t be surprised if you start to see his name around a lot more as the year goes on. With that being said, do yourself a favor and watch ROLE MODEL’s new visual for “minimal” below and follow him on Instagram and Twitter to see what’s next from him and his team!
