Enigmatic Artist BADMIND Emerges From the Shadows With Debut Single "redemption"


A shadow emerging from seemingly nothingness, BADMIND has arrived cloaked and perfectly still. “redemption” is our introduction to the eclipsed artist, enchanting us with the longing for more.

As time and music progress hand in hand, R&B has taken on several fonts at once. BADMIND is contributing to the genre’s evolution by walking the tightrope between vaporwave and soul. Landing on Spotify’s R&B weekly and Fresh Finds R&B playlists, his name is already holding weight without much distraction nor convincing. He’s a ghost on the internet, letting his art be only what speaks of him. 

“redemption” is a trap-heavy track that’s emotionally dense yet light on its feet. “We don’t get along so well / You say you love me, can’t tell” anchor the song's disdain, fighting to see through the blurred overlap of coming together and falling apart. BADMIND lingers around accountability for the distance yet comes home to the coldness of rejection.

Though his identity remains out of reach, it’s difficult to assume this will be the last time we’ll be haunted by him. As he fuses together what Dominic Fike and Bryson Tiller have done for the culture, seasoning it with intricate and dynamic chillwave production, we can’t help but find the game of his anonymity all the more alluring.
