Antwon has found himself in a lane with very few competitors, operating in a pretty singular sound. Producing music that barely straddles the line of hip-hop, his songs take great influence from both ’80s goth pop and gaudy ’90s R&B. His latest track, the Shawn Kemp-produced (aka Lil’ Ugly Mane) “Rain Song” showcases his typically melancholy lyricism, resulting in a luscious and lugubrious wash of atmosphere. “Rain Song” is the first single off his upcoming album, Heavy Hearted In Doldrums, which will be released for free on May 6.
