Over the last few months Australian artist Lemonade Baby has given us two exceptional new singles – Don’t Stop (Keep on Keepin on) & Tints (feat. Kevin Collett) – which also came with the announcement that his debut ep was headed our way soon.
That ep is titled “Xtra Pop” and after two-years in the making he is very excited to be sharing that with us this week. It features the two above mentioned singles alongside three other unheard gems; “I’m Spinnin A Record”, “Dry Lungs” and ‘Hounds of Love’, which is a homage to the legendary Kate Bush as he covers her 1985 song, giving it his own signature flare.
“I am absolutely thrilled to announce the release of my labor of love, ‘Xtra Pop,’ a compilation EP that has been two years in the making. This project began with 40 demos, and after an incredible creative journey, I have carefully curated and refined it down to 5 tracks that I am immensely proud to share with the world.
‘Xtra Pop’ is an exploration of my musical evolution, combining the nostalgia of 2000’s production with my own modern vocal stylings. It’s a bit of everything that has inspired me throughout my artistic journey, paying homage to the legendary Daft Punk, Fatboy Slim, Kaytranda, as well as contemporary artists like Post Malone and Playboi Carti.
The EP takes listeners on a ride through various moods, from the allure of dark clubs to the exhilaration of pool parties and late-night drives. Each track reflects my life experiences, emotions, and artistic growth, and I can’t wait for you to immerse yourselves in this sonic adventure.
‘Xtra Pop’ is a true reflection of who I am as an artist. It’s a fusion of my influences, experiences, and creativity, I say with excitement. The production takes me back to the 2000’s, while my vocals and modern influences give it a fresh twist. This EP is a labor of love, and I hope it resonates with all of you.” ~ Lemonade Baby
