Floyd Zion Pushes Forward At All Costs in "Belly"
Houston’s very own Floyd Zion is back with his latest alternative trap single “Belly,” standing as proof that beyond being a fashion mogul, he’s a true rockstar at heart.
Floyd Zion’s innate eclectic nature has earned him an “in,” daring people to peer closer while he’s already onto the next thing. His art is an extension of his own eccentricity, fusing sounds so psychedelic, you may miss just how much pain lies in his lyrics as you get lost in his sonic kaleidoscope.
“Belly” is a declaration on the war against stagnancy," Zion shares. “I wrote this song at a time in my life when I felt stuck. Stuck in my relationship, stuck with a job I didn't want, stuck in a reality I didn't want to live in. I wanted to put something on record that pushed back at the feeling of feeling stuck and complacent.”
This certainly isn’t the first time the artist has dug into himself for his music. The second single to come from his debut EP Pink By Floyd, “Belly” follows the track “Black Hoodie,” which paid homage to Trayvon Martin and centered rage as its main instrument.
With lines like “When dusse’s all on my breath, I float around with unnecessary evils,” he remains daring around the seemingly untouchable, like self-medication, religious constructs, and racial injustice.
When he isn’t being featured in Vogue or bringing black funk to the runway, Floyd Zion is birthing a brand new wave as he reflects on his past. To listen to him is to glimpse into the future of indie rock, washed guitar riffs, and all.
