When it Rains is the brand-new track from HAZLEWXXD from the Urban Pop artists new EP ‘5 AM Somewhere’. The Trap style beat is blissfully balanced between melodic and mid-tempo meaning that this track isn’t an attack of over-hyped sounds, it rings with a subtle veracity to match HAZLEWXXD’s vocal style. The tentative pacing to When It Rains against the slightly subdued deep lyrics makes this track a perfectly harmonious anthem with the perfect amount of bite. The Texas based producer doesn’t hang around putting out new mixes; since his release of 5 AM Somewhere he’s released yet another EP ‘ScrapMetal vol. His latest releases prove the diversity of his gritty sound as he ventures across to the Alt Rock arena with tracks such as Pain Killer, the bassline is hypnotic with a slight reminiscence to other Alternative artists such as Nine Inch Nails and The Prodigy in a more muted, reminiscent way.
HAZLEWXXD’s EP 5 AM Somewhere is now available to download and stream across all major platforms, or you can check out the official music video to When It Rains on YouTube
