AUGUST 08

A follow-up to his 2018 debut EP release '"Father", AUGUST 08 continues to exhibit exceptional songwriting and production on the Happy Endings EP. From the first song "Spiral" featuring Wynne, AUGUST 08 offers a master class on how to write lyrics around complex issues like depression and drug addiction into a radio-friendly rhythmic track. On the lead track "Good Girls", AUGUST 08 teams up with longtime collaborator Duckwrth to convey a story of complicated love. Pairing swooning vocals from AUGUST 08 and a fiery verse from Duckwrth, listeners are fully immersed in the good girl / bad boy saga. Two prior singles, "Simple Pleasures" featuring Goldlink and "Blood on My Hands" featuring Smino are added to the EP as fan favorites. Lastly, tracks "Civilized" and "Swim" are a continuation in lyricism showcasing the renegade spirit and anti-culture approach to his artistry.
