Barbados bred, Los Angeles based artist, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Rex & The Rhythm releases the new single and video for “Highs & Grows”. Inspired by 90s hip-hop legends including Outkast and A Tribe Called Quest, “Highs & Grows” strikes a distinctive mark between psychedelic soul, alt-pop, and hip-hop for a cosmic journey of inner-evolution, honoring both the pitfalls and peaks of being human.
“Highs & Grows” is a track that explores an array of live percussion, sun-drenched electric guitar, and transcendental lyricism that is complemented by reverberating euphoric harmonies, resulting in a kaleidoscopic and uplifting sound. The music video for “Highs & Grows”, directed by DannyJFilms, pays homage to Outkast’s iconic single “Hey Ya!” and reflects an atmosphere of authenticity where Rex delves into the core essence of his creative process and sincerity as an artist.
Rex & The Rhythm made his entry into the music scene with Caribbean pop group Cover Drive, which gained remarkable success with three UK top ten hits, multi-platinum and silver singles. He’s opened for Rihanna, Kelly Clarkson, and Lauryn Hill. Most recently, Rex opened for Ashanti in Barbados at The Hennessy Artistry festival in December 2022 before releasing his sophomore project, Secrets Behind Our Smiles last February.
