Raedio Signees GAWD Release Debut EP ‘Cathedral City’ + Visual “NVM”

Published

on

Rising R&B duo GAWD (@gawdherself) deliver a heavenly sonic experience throughout their latest EP ‘Cathedral City,‘ out now. Fresh off the release of their latest single “Two Hot,” the girls are keeping up the momentum and proving why they’re up next. Now, listeners can fully dive into the realm of GAWD with their new EP ‘Cathedral City,’ which consists of a mesmerizing collection of tracks that takes listeners on a sonic journey like no other. Accompanied by the music video for “NVM,” GAWD paints a full picture of storytelling and the labor of love that went into the entire project from start to finish.

The heart and soul of the EP ‘Cathedral City‘ lies in its unique thematic inspiration. Executive produced by Stanley Randolph, the sounds and vibes of the project can be described as heavenly.

The Raedio signees together prove to be an unstoppable force. GAWD’s creative union formed in the desert, where their surroundings infused their music with an otherworldly aura. 

“Subsequently all the music we began to make sounded very heavenly with lots of reverberating harmonies that sounded like it was recorded underneath the high ceilings of a cathedral,” GAWD says. “This concept gave way to our name and informed the type of sounds we gravitated towards.”

The resulting harmonies set the stage for their distinctive sound. In fact, this very concept not only gave rise to their name but also guided their musical direction.

In GAWD’s own words, ‘Cathedral City’ transcends the ordinary. Through this EP, GAWD invites listeners into a world where they and all of us exist as complex, nuanced beings, embracing a rich tapestry of sounds, genres, roles, and archetypes. It’s a portrayal of themselves as the main characters in their own stories, portraying flaws, complexities, pettiness, evolution, and everything in between.

“We wanted to imagine a world where we existed as nuanced and varied beings, in all sounds, genres, roles and archetypes. We wanted to see ourselves as the main characters in our own stories, flawed and complex and petty and evolved and everything in between.”

As far as this year goes, GAWD has been on a roll. Fresh off supporting Becky Hill on tour at The Fonda in August and set to perform at Rhythm & Vibes in Los Angeles on September 23rd— the future looks bright for them.

Fat Trel & Millyz Drops “Airplane Mode”

Published

on

DMV titan Fat Trel goes on “Airplane Mode” with help from Beantown barsmith Millyz. Accompanied by a matching music video, the Kidd Slopes produced collaboration from the east coast emcees follows Trel’s previous releases “Right Or Wrong” featuring Kash Doll’s husband Tracy T and Sada Baby assisted single “Steppa.” Serving as the latest leak from his forthcoming album ‘Boosa’s Keeper,’ expected to be released towards the end of the Summer, the HD-clip finds the pair trading verses about everything from loyalty to downside of fame.

Fat Trel has nurtured and grown his organic storytelling ability with creative word play and pulverizing flow. Taking a raw approach to music, some would say as graphic and grimy as the streets of DC, but equally memorable and captivating nonetheless. He holds no punches and tells each story with such relativity they appear verbatim, in a matter of fact nature, that illustrates he is genuinely home grown and not caught up in the idea of being from the streets.

Martrel Reeves PKA Fat Trel was a child far more ambitious and cognizant of his surroundings than the norm. At age seven, he professed ambitions to be a rapper, while peers delivered the proverbial “I have a Dream” Speech about aspirations to be nurses, doctors, lawyers, and fire fighters. As peers sat excited by the endless possibilities of the future, Fat Trel sat perplexed by the harsh realities of DC; the place he called home. Fat Trel exited high school at age 15, caught up in the lure and necessity of street life; a road more traveled when the have-nots impose an immediate call to action. Unconvinced high school education would support his family or cultivate his ambitions, Fat Trel hit the ground running in pursuit of being an emcee and has not stopped running since.
