In the dynamic realm of music, where genres intertwine and artists carve their distinct niches, Rex & The Rhythm stands as a boundary-pushing force. The Barbados-bred, Los Angeles-based artist, producer, and multi-instrumentalist takes listeners on a cosmic journey of inner evolution with his latest release, “Highs & Grows.”
Drawing inspiration from 90s hip-hop legends like Outkast and A Tribe Called Quest, Rex & The Rhythm skillfully navigates the intersection of psychedelic soul, alt-pop, and hip-hop. “Highs & Grows” is a testament to his ability to weave diverse elements into a tapestry of sound that is both nostalgic and refreshingly contemporary.
The track unfolds with an array of live percussion, sun-drenched electric guitar, and transcendental lyricism. Rex & The Rhythm, true to his name, orchestrates a symphony that resonates with euphoric harmonies, creating a kaleidoscopic and uplifting auditory experience. The result is a sonic landscape that mirrors the peaks and pitfalls of the human experience.
Directed by DannyJFilms, the music video for “Highs & Grows” pays homage to the iconic “Hey Ya!” by Outkast, offering a visual feast that mirrors the authenticity of Rex’s creative process. In this visual journey, Rex delves into the core essence of his artistry and reveals the sincerity that underlies his work.
Rex & The Rhythm made their mark on the music scene with the Caribbean pop group Cover Drive, achieving notable success with three UK top-ten hits, multi-platinum singles, and silver singles. Having opened for global icons such as Rihanna, Kelly Clarkson, and Lauryn Hill, Rex’s musical journey is marked by significant milestones.
In December 2022, Rex & The Rhythm shared the stage with Ashanti at The Hennessy Artistry Festival in Barbados, setting the stage for what was to come. His sophomore project, “Secrets Behind Our Smiles,” released in February, showcased the depth and versatility of his musical prowess.
“Highs & Grows” not only solidifies Rex & The Rhythm’s position as a genre-defying artist but also reflects his commitment to pushing artistic boundaries. With each release, he invites audiences to join him on a sonic odyssey where the highs and lows of the human experience converge in a celestial dance of sound.
