Today, genre-defying artist d4vd releases his highly anticipated debut EP Petals To Thorns via Darkroom/Interscope. Listen HERE.
Petals To Thorns is an introduction and journey into d4vd’s identity as an artist that’s unable to be boxed into a specific genre. Just one year after beginning to make music in his sister’s closet in Houston, d4vd has delivered masterful nine-track project with familiar hits including RIAA platinum “Romantic Homicide,” a grungy, guitar-driven breakup anthem, and RIAA gold “Here With Me,” a slow-building beachy ballad, and new tracks showcasing his inimitable sound. The EP establishes d4vd as one of the best new emerging acts, corroborated by his recent Billboard 21 Under 21 honor.
Today, d4vd debuts a video for “The Bridge,” a modern melody that draws from early 2000s pop punk, with heavy guitar riffs and palpable percussion. Its accompanying red-tinged, music video perfectly visually encapsulates d4vd’s angst-filled, heartbroken lyrics. Watch “The Bridge” HERE.
The EP also hears d4vd partner with Icelandic pop-artist Laufey on “This Is How It Feels” an entrancing ballad, heavily rooted in storytelling with d4vd and Laufey communicating through song against twinkling piano keys. The result is something straight out of a fairytale, not dissimilar from the soundtracks of your favorite nostalgic childhood films, but with modern lyrics evocative of the love stories of today.
