Chris Orrick – “Design Flaw”

Published

on

Chris Orrick is known for dancing a lyrical line between comedy & tragedy in his records. His upcoming album “Portraits” is the perfect culmination of his emotions, flaws, & insecurities weaved through his musical showcase. Chocked full of talented producers the likes of Apollo Brown, Exile, L’Orange, Onra, Calvin Valentine and Nolan The Ninja he tells stories of struggle & addiction above their backdrops. Here to give us a glimpse of what to expect on the upcoming project is the music video for “Design Flaw” laced over L’Orange production & directed by Malcolm Critcher.

Malcolm had this to say about the video:
 “One thing that has always struck me about Chris Orrick’s lyrics is how deftly they walk the razors edge of the comedic and tragic. For our first collaboration, I wanted to bring this spirit to life. The idea of having a Puppet circling the drain to rock bottom was ultimately born from ruminating on addicts and what role denial plays in their struggle. The Puppet is approaching rock bottom as an alcoholic, but foundation-ally his substance abuse stems from his denial of the fact that he is an inanimate object. I thought this idea was hilarious. I hope you do too.”
“Portraits” drops May 4th Via Mello Music Group. Guest appearances include Fashawn & Verbal Kent.

FROSTisRAD – “RUSH”

Published

"RUSH" starts off with FROSTisRAD explaining that he can't fuck with you before going on about being on the edge.

A couple of weeks ago I introduced our readers to a local artist making waves who goes by FROSTisRAD. Fast forward from “The Beginning” from that intro & we are delivered another example of the Cudi-esque newcomer in another enticing record. “RUSH” starts off with FROSTisRAD explaining that he can’t fuck with you before going on about being on the edge. It’s a fitting record in some ways for the heartbroken or confused on this Valentine’s day. FROSTisRAD is fantastic at building out songs as they go on, & the switch-ups in delivery throughout peak the listener’s interest in a way I can see going very far in this industry. Two offerings in it’s become quickly apparent that the local artist is one to keep on watch!
