The EP also features brand-new single “Head in the Clouds” and unreleased tracks “The Idea of You” and “Faces”. The Changes – EP is a collection of songs inspired by personal experiences and is a culmination of Hayd’s signature mellow style driven by brutally honest and emotional lyrics, raw vocals, and accompanied by a soft and simple production. Hayd’s ChangesEP is available now at all digital retail providers via Interscope Records. See the full tracklist below.

Hayd says about the EP, “Life comes and goes in seasons. This EP, from front to back, is the journey it took me to realize that. For so long I tried to resist the change around me. I was scared of the unknown, scared of failure… but change is how we grow. “There’s a reason for every season” … at least that’s what my mom’s Hallmark pillow says.”

Changes – EP Track List:

  1. Closure
  2. Head in the Clouds
  3. The Idea of You
  4. Faces
  5. Airplane Mode
  6. Changes

In addition to the EP, Hayd dropped the music video for his new single “Head in the Clouds.” The video, directed by Jesse DeFlorio, finds Hayd reminiscing on a relationship between two cloud figures who were once in love. Shot on Kodak Film for a dated effect, the cloud figures are seen enjoying each other’s company, interspersed with shots of Hayd playing the heartfelt track on the piano.  Eventually, the female cloud figure walks away from her partner, leaving him alone with a note. Hayd eventually reveals himself to be the male cloud figure, memorializing his own relationship that once was. 360 Magazine is excited for this young star to begin his journey in the music industry.

RHYME SO – POSEABLE

RHYME SO Drop Striking New Video POSEABLE, latest video from Japanese-Australian experimental dance-pop duo

RHYME SO – a Japanese-Australian experimental dance-pop duo – have released a wildly creative new music video POSEABLE via 88INFINITY. It’s their latest video since 2020’s Fashion Blogger, and a taste of what’s to come from one of music’s most fascinating enigmas.

The video, which was partly shot in a capsule hotel in Tokyo, pokes fun at society’s compulsive obsession with digital validity, hopping from one Instagram-worthy pose to another. The visual includes a cameo from Mari Natsuki, the beloved Japanese actress known for her maternal roles in Studio Ghibli’s Spirited Away and the Japanese remake of Bewitched. Assuming the role of the tastemaking grandma, Mari embodies the song’s refrain “or grandma sends you home,” an ode to grandma’s unyielding sense of what’s good and what’s not.

“The message of POSEABLE is about going back to the roots and honoring Grandma’s sense and allowing her to be the tastemaker, as she knows what’s up when it comes to quality and the original recipe for success,” RHYME says.

At a time when the music industry is as saturated as ever, sometimes it’s not about chasing trends, but making yourself truly unique; something RHYME SO embraces to the utmost.

“We both got better at what we set out to do, and many things have happened that have re-assured us we are on the right track,” RHYME adds.

RHYME SO consists of OG Japanese dance producer Shinichi Osawa (aka SO, best known from his other artist project Mondo Grosso) and Australian-born rapper/poet/model RHYME. Shinichi and RHYME met at a party in Tokyo several years back and before long they became involved both musically and romantically. They’ve dubbed their music Blank Post Genre, a concept centered around creating a blank canvas in response to a digital age overflowing with information. It’s a way for a sonic refresh, allowing Osawa and RHYME to craft rumbling dance music complete with lyrics poking fun at modern life.

POSEABLE is RHYME SO’s latest release on 88INFINITY, a sub-label of 88rising, perhaps the preeminent Asian record label in the world. RHYME SO’s hypnotic debut single Just Used Music Again appeared on 88rising’s 2019 compilation “Head In The Clouds II”, which they followed up with Fashion Blogger, another iconic music video depicting a fictional figure skating contest, guest starring MILK from Ru Paul’s Drag Race.

POSEABLE is well suited for dancefloor mayhem and RHYME SO looks forward to bringing their refreshingly unique, cutting-edge brand of dance music stateside in the coming months.

BabyJake – Head In The Clouds

Today, singer, songwriter BabyJake gifts fans with his new single, “Head In The Clouds,” taken from his debut EP, Don’t give me problems, give me wine, out this Friday—listen HERE and watch the visual HERE!

On the bouncy, jangly “Head in the Clouds,” BabyJake explores the hidden weight of emotional escape, juxtaposing bright guitarwork against moody lyrics about self-defeat and the pitfalls of depression and avoidance. Of the song, he says, “I’m always late. I have a hard time focusing. My mind is always somewhere else. ‘Head In The Clouds’ is about that…my daily struggles.”

Head In The Clouds” follows BabyJake’s breakout singles, “Confidant,” “Blue Cellophane” and “MadHappySad,” as well as his collaborations with Dillon Francis, “You Do You” and “Touch,” released earlier this spring. Stay tuned for Don’t give me problems, give me wine out this Friday!

ABOUT BABYJAKE

Jake Herring, the artist who records as BabyJake, has a complicated relationship with music. Growing up in Fort Meyers, Florida, Herring first picked up the guitar when he was eight years old. By the time he was in high school, he was juggling a deep, somewhat private love of music with genuine enthusiasm for sports and partying with his friends. He didn’t feel like he fit in in any specific social group, and soon felt alienated. For solace, Herring turned to his dad’s folk records, favoring the low-key contemplative sounds that resonated with the sense of alienation that he was feeling. Though he maybe wasn’t conscious of it at the time, Herring was priming himself to be a sort of musical chameleon. Well versed in the building blocks of rock music, the intimacy of folk, and with an innate understanding of the rap and pop music he grew up around, he was constructing a well of disparate influences to draw from when he eventually made a serious go at a music career. After his freshman year of college, Herring dropped out and started writing songs as often as he could, debuting as BabyJake in 2019 with his viral single “Cigarettes on Patios,” which has accumulated over 35 million streams to date. Before too long, he had his first official body of work, which quickly evolved into a multifaceted career that currently involves a record label called daycare with an added merch/streetwear line and a budding career penning and producing songs with other artists. His seven-song debut EP, Don’t give me problems, give me wine, feels like the result of an artist older than his years, someone who has lived recklessly and loved hard and is ready to put it all on record.
