- Artist: ¡MAYDAY!
- Track: Darker Shades
- Producer: Plex Luthor and Gianni Cash
- Album: Thrift Store Halos EP
As Corey Heart once so eloquently pointed out, there's no more rock star move than wearing your sunglasses at night. Well I guess that means Miami crew ¡MAYDAY! are officially rock stars because not even normal sunglasses are enough to shield their eyes from the bright lights; in fact, they need even Darker Shades. A new video and lead single off their upcoming EP, Shades finds the group's resident producers Plex Luthor and Gianni Cash crafting a minimal instrumental with a light punk rock foundation. From there Bernz and Wrekonize lyrically take the track to a deeper place, laying down nihilistic rhymes that should have Strange Music fans worldwide eager to grab a copy of ¡MAYDAY!'s upcoming Thrift Store Halos project, due out August 7 (pre-order now!).
