sadeyes has shared his new EP molotov ahead of a run of dates supporting nothing, nowhere including Manchester Club Academy.
The Portland rapper has been pushing the envelope as an artist since his start in 2017. Drawing on alternative hip-hop, emo and lo-fi he has pulled in more than 140 million streams. Now, new EP molotov marks a shift from his earlier material.
“As I get older, it’s been easier to open up and be myself,” sadeyes explains. “I was really afraid of showing everyone that I was more than just a lo-fi artist. I was scared of failure but the more I worked on other styles of music, the more comfortable I felt sharing, and then the sound started to evolve.”
The EP features the lead single dropout found him moving more towards could rap and pop, a theme which filters through the eight-track EP. It features greater experimentation, R’n’B hooks, trap beats and more.
As a Portland native, sadeyes doesn’t necessarily identify with the regional music scene, but instead credits the internet. Transcending genre and regional boundaries, sadeyes has been able to connect with different artists and producers while collecting eclectic influences from all over. Beat stores such as BeatStars make this kind of collaboration even easier; setting the foundation for the majority of molotov to be built upon.
