Equal parts dreamy and devastating, “WORDS FROM YOU” combines the best of both worlds from its talented collaborators. L.A.-based British expat Bipolar Sunshine glides over the track with a silky smooth yet forlorn vocal delivery. The lyrics explore the desire for reassurance amidst a rocky relationship. The seesawing emotions move from fond recollections to spiraling paranoia as the backing perfectly scores the scene. Mesmerizing melodies create a surreal state that’s punched up with precise percussion. The chorus allows the whirlwind of emotions to become fully unleashed. Booming 808s provide a trap-leaning knock while cawing vox flourishes counterbalance the main vocal, effectively deepening the feels. Blending emotive overtones, addictive vocals, and a warm-weather sound palette, “WORDS FROM YOU” is primed to be a summer anthem that offers something more profound than your average bop. 

OddKidOut reflects on the collaboration saying, “I’ve been a fan of Bipolar Sunshine for a while, so to finally get one on the books with him is a dream. ‘WORDS FROM YOU’ is the perfect blend of his world and mine, and having it live under the HARD roof couldn’t be any more perfect.”

Bipolar Sunshine shares his excitement, saying, “I got to tap into my R&B poetic side on this release. OKO presented me with the perfect palette for me to express myself.”

Philadelphia-raised OddKidOut is a producer, multi-instrumentalist, and finger drummer who’s been taking the electronic scene by storm. His sound effortlessly moves from hard-hitting trap to vibey future feels and everything in between. OddKidOut is hot off his debut headline show at the Moroccan Lounge in LA where he premiered “WORDS FROM YOU” live alongside Bipolar Sunshine. He is set to join MEMBA on tour as direct support and will be supporting San Holo and NGHTMRE through April and May.

Los Angeles-based and UK-born singer-songwriter Bipolar Sunshine is one of the most in-demand talents in the industry. His breakout single “Middle” with DJ Snake has amassed nearly a billion streams and he won a Grammy for his co-writing credits on “Brown Skin Girl” by Beyonce and WhizKid. He has also collaborated with some of the biggest names in electronic music including San Holo, ILLENIUM, Blanke, Gryffin, and more.

“WORDS FROM YOU” blends genres for an unforgettable creation that further deepens the already impressive catalogs from OddKidOut and Bipolar Sunshine.   

OddKidOut and Bipolar Sunshine’s new single “WORDS FROM YOU” is available on all platforms via HARD Recs.
