Incredibly exciting R&B talent Rex Evans drops the catchy and cool EP ‘Dissonant’. With a trap-tinged lead track ‘In For the Night’, it drops March 19th and is sure to be on repeat.
Produced by Lou Two, ‘In For the Night’ enters in with distorted samples before a 808-heavy trap beat rolls out. The vocals are catchy and unique, with a killer hook. The track “is about learning what’s important and
prioritizing those things over everything else,” explains Rex – “stay working for family.” Growing up in Atlanta surrounded by music, his mother played bass and sang on records by Madonna, TLC and Jay-Z to name a few, so music is thoroughly in his blood.
Off the back of a huge 2020 collab with rising star Seddy Hendrinx, Rex has had multiple hits recording streams over 200k on Spotify, including ‘Lil Shawty’ (also appearing on the EP) and ‘40’. Having previously worked with Dallas Austin (Madonna, Michael Jackson etc) and even getting into production himself, Rex is already on the rise helped by great press coverage such as Wonderland and Clash.
The EP itself is a genre-bending classic with R&B roots. From lyrical flow on ‘Open Letter’ to heartfelt melancholy on ‘Pray’, ‘Dissonant’ is expansive and melodic, remaining stylish but also unique. And with ‘In For the Night’ as a lead track, Rex Evans is sure to be one to watch for 2021.
