LISTEN: “Baby Eye”
Multimedia artist, singer and producer MeLo-X has had a busy summer. He collaborated with Brooklyn painters Hugo McCloud and Awol Erizku, and did some incredible sound and light performances in New York at Sean Kelly Gallery and The Museum of Modern Art. Today, he’s back to share “Baby Eye,” the first single from his upcoming CURATE EP. You can listen above, and check out what he has to say about the track below.
MeLo-X on “Baby Eye”:
I wrote “Baby Eye” last year in L.A., around the time when the cop that killed Eric Garner was acquitted. “Baby Eye” feels like a happy song. The chorus is, “Baby, I want to see your body next to mine.” You think we’re in bed or something. But then I say, “Baby, I want to see you move your mind.” I wrote it thinking about being together while revolting and having her by my side. I want to see her move the people and move souls.”
Using original compositions, live remixes, video installation, and photography, MeLo-X’s work spans performance, music, fashion, and design, gaining him a reputation for seamlessly blending all these worlds.
