LA based artist MESSY creates music which blurs the boundaries of contemporary pop.
Combining hip-hop beats and rich dancehall rhythms, his latest single “Out For Blood” is packed with mesmerising synth lines and an anthemic chorus. The track’s off-kilter beat embodies modern R&B and pop elements, whilst the producer’s emotionally warped vocals sing the all too familiar tune of a failed relationship that turned into an even harder breakup.
Discussing the track, MESSY explains: “‘Out For Blood’ is about a partnership that ended badly. The other person had a hard time letting it go and everything I said in the song is exactly what happened. They were pissed and had it out for me after that.”
MESSY started writing and producing music as a means to explore intrinsically human experiences of love, pain, and nostalgia, with his lyrics painting a vivid picture of his internal struggle to balance his energy and identity as a father and musician. “I wanna be the biggest artist in the world, plain and simple. My family has my back and we’re not stopping till we get there,” he concludes.
“Out For Blood” is set for release July 17th, 2020.
