Today’s song is “My Blackened Heart” by KID LAB RAT. Hailing from Melbourne, Australia is also known as Dylan James.
James started out writing and performing alt-rock around Manchester, England before moving back to his homeland in 2014.
In addition to changing his location, James realized he had a new focus in music and started releasing Hip Hop tracks.
This past January he released a new album entitled More Sad Songs. “My Blackened Heart” is off this latest album and reminds me of what Nirvana would sound like if Kurt Cobain rapped. This effortless mix of alternative rock with gritty tones and pounding beats is an enticing track.
He has created an eclectic sound that is emotive, unique and unforgettable
