LA multi-hyphenate contradash is rapidly becoming a phenomenon.
Rock meets rap, performer meets studio artist, his sound fuses together shards of youth culture into one potent elixir.
Recently inking a huge deal with Interscope Records, contradash could well dominate 2020's fractured landscape.
The 22 year old returns with new single 'white lie', and it's a bold, leering return, one that is enormously impactful in its execution.
Taut songwriting, whip-smart raps, it's an incredibly addictive single, blending emo tropes with an awareness of West Coast rap.
“I told Russ Chell I needed a ‘Since You Been Gone’ type beat and he whipped up the craziest lead melody, and I just screamed my face off, it was so fun,” says contradash.
The cinematic visual airs through Clash, and it's a homage of sorts to Avril Lavigne, and her post-Millennial angst.
Contradash states: “We wanted to make some Avril Lavigne 2002 shit with this video, she’s a hero to kids my age. I watched her ‘Smile’ video, it really inspired me to go in that direction. The 2000’s is my favorite era, I didn’t take life as serious, and that’s something we tried to embody with the ‘White Lie’ video.”
