Wisconsin born, Los Angeles-based artist Unusual Demont has made a triumphant return with his first song of the year, “NIGHTTIME”, a stunning track which showcases his recognised, colourful soul-inspired R&B sound.
The single will soon become part of his sophomore project CHRYSALIS— which will be a collection of first class track he’s been curating since the release of his debut album HUES back in 2021.
“NIGHTTIME” is one of my favorite songs I’ve ever made. With my life becoming the most chaotic it’s ever been during the creation of the project it’s on (CHRYSALIS.), I found myself, at times, writing about the more calm experiences I’d had in life, to keep my music a safe space for me. So something as simple as riding a bike through the city to meet a crush while in adolescence felt warm. Which is the focus of the first half. The drum and bass section, however, serves almost to bring you “back to earth”, reflecting my life in the present, hectic but beautiful. The production does all of that so well. I’m thankful to have worked with Dee Lilly, who’s such a fun producer that uses so many cool sounds and chords that feel so lush. It feels like we executed that blend of RnB and DnB just right. This is my first song in a very long time, and I’m excited to say that it’s also a new sound that I’ve never done before. I hope that when you listen, it’s as fun – if not more – of an experience to hear as it was to create.” — Unusual Demont.
