[SONG OF THE DAY] SG Lewis - "Flames (feat. Ruel)"
SG Lewis & Ruel

VIBE O CLOCK ON FRI-YAYYYYYYYYY

After premiering the track with a live debut at Coachella weekend two, British producer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist SG Lewis has shared his latest track, “Flames”, which follows up “Throwaway”, another cut from the Dawn portion of his Dusk Dark Dawn EP series. The track features 16-year old Australian pop star RUEL (who I should add is pretty fuckin HUGE down under) on vocals this time around. Speaking on the collaboration, SG shared,“I was put onto RUEL’s music about 18 months ago, and watching his growth since then has been amazing. He’s got such soul to his voice for someone of his age, it’s crazy.”

I’ll admit, I’m sitting here a pretty jealous that people got a first taste of this in a festival setting, especially one as huge as Coachella. The song, much like the break of dawn, is energetic and expansive with a hint of airiness to it. The kind of song that sometimes when you’re bumping it feels like a miracle it can be contained.

I suppose a good compromise to this will be experiencing this at Brooklyn Steel in September, as SG has also revealed that he’s got some North American tour dates starting at the end of August at the North Coast Music Fest in Chicago and running till mid October where he’ll wrap up in Los Angeles at The Novo. Tickets are on sale now so grab those while you still can.

[SONG OF THE DAY] SG Lewis X Clairo - "Throwaway"

Last week British producer SG Lewis unveiled a new track, “Throwaway”, from the third and final installment of his Dusk Dark Dawn series featuring vocal stylings of viral sensation and good friend to SG, Clairo. As the theme of the series has gone, “Throwaway” is this hazy glimmering downtempo production on its own, only to be further elevated by Clairo’s sugary sweet vocals. Fitting perfectly with the Dawn aesthetic, it’s reminiscent of the first few moments of sunrise.

Speaking on the track, SG shared, “Throwaway was written in LA one evening - we were both super tired and had some shit going on in our respective personal lives. We sat and talked for ages, and after that Throwaway flowed out in no time at all. Clairo is such a special artist and an incredible songwriter, and I'm super proud of this song.”

If you’re prepping to don a flower crown and dance your cares away in Indio at Coachella next month, be sure to catch SG Lewis’ set as he’ll be playing both weekends. In addition to the festival appearance, he’ll also be performing in support of Jaden Smith at Shrine Expo Hall in LA on April 16th. More info below!

[SONG OF THE DAY] SG Lewis - "Again (feat. Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs)"

Today in Everything SG Lewis Makes Is So Perfect It’s Almost Unfair we have his latest single, “Again”, which is a collaboration with the ever loved Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs. The track follows “A.A.T” which featured Drew Love of THEY fame and is part of the second phase of his upcoming three-part concept album DuskDarkDawn, which chronicles the trajectory of a night out through its different moods and genres and serves as a tribute to club and youth culture.

Earlier this year he released Dusk, which was a blend of glimmering disco and electro pop. As you’ll hear on “A.A.T.” and (more specifically) “Again”, this second phase, Dark, is exploring much heavier sounds.

After wrapping a massive US tour, SG will be heading to Europe for a string of dates starting in late November including Bristol and Manchester shows before closing out the tour with a special headline show at London Printworks on December 7th. Dates below Euro fam!
