In addition to releasing a new song, contradash has confirmed his debut EP for Interscope Records ‘ALL-STAR,’ as well as the EP’s track list, below. ‘ALL-STAR’ is contradash’s first project to be released through Interscope Records.
PAPER Magazine called “favorite color” “breezy,” dubbing ‘ALL-STAR’ “an assemblage of potent emo-pop heavy hitters.” contradash spoke to PAPER about his ‘ALL-STAR’ EP, 5th grade sports, and lockdown. “It's a blessing to not tackle the real life aspect of this yet,” says contradash, who has spent most of 2020 writing and making music. “This is just beyond extra credit. I couldn't be in a bad mood if I tried.” Read contradash’s full interview with PAPER Magazine here.
“‘favorite color’ is a play on the color red being a girl’s favorite color. I described leaving someone on ‘read,’ who’s favorite color is ‘red,’ as leaving them on their favorite color,” says contradash. “On an unrelated note, I really was wondering how long it’d take people to find me if I had randomly buried myself somewhere. That's what the pre-hook is saying. Looking back this really makes me realize how scatter-brained I am when coming up with song ideas. But it’s all fun regardless and I really love this one."
22-year-old contradash seamlessly cross-pollinates emo, pop and hip-hop into a sound tailor-made for lovelorn gen-Z’ers, earning him early praise from Billboard, Flaunt, AltPress, and more. contradash will reveal more details about his debut ‘ALL-STAR’ EP soon.
