Myles Lloyd is an R&B singer from Montreal, Canada. His vocal presence and songwriting is filled with a careless emotion that can be defined as vulnerable, honest and when at its best, confusing. Filled with complex stories and real-life scenarios that have come to his attention over the past years, his music acts as a release when his thoughts are finally transformed into lyrics.
‘Down Under‘ was written about coming out from a place that no one will expect. Demanding respect, the track touches on the need to go get your life and put a stop to the souls and situations that take advantage of your shine. Lloyd shares, “I had enough of being patient and had to start coming for what is mine.”
Oozing in an oriental glaze, the subtle intro gives nothing away before Lloyd’s stunning vocals swoop in with a Michael Jackson tinge to the vocal tone. The beat kicks in alongside 808’s and a heavy force of power, with icy high hats and a minimal approach to the soundscape, unlike his previous singles ‘Monster‘ and ‘Running On You‘. Lloyd shows his melodic writing skills flushed in rap-vibe pops and an addicting hook. The lyrics bubble in raw authenticity and a burst of passion and fire for taking his seat at the throne.
