With ‘Notes From A Wrist’, released alongside a music video directed by Erik Rojas, d4vd continues to broaden his multi-dimensional artistic scope of influence. While much of his lyricism shares the same somber tenor, the young singer deepens his sonic experimentation – this time with lofi R&B instrumental and rhythmic, percussive vocals.

I wrote ‘Notes From A Wrist’ about a childhood friend that struggled with depression,” d4vd explained. “It describes the pain experienced in an unstable home and something a lot of people in my generation experience and can relate to. The sonics are very stripped back, and the vocals almost sound like a looming voice in your head.”

The song follows his recently released debut EP, ‘Petals To Thorns’, a masterful nine-track project with breakthrough hits including RIAA Multi-Platinum ‘Romantic Homicide,’ a grungy, guitar-driven breakup anthem and RIAA Platinum low-building beachy ballad ‘Here With Me’. This first EP established d4vd as one of the best new emerging acts, corroborated by his recent Billboard 21 Under 21 honor. Following on the heels of his spring headline ‘The Root of it All debut tour, which sold-out within 30 minutes of going on sale and a successful run of sold-out European tour dates, d4vd brought his ‘Petals To Thorns’ tour to larger stages in the US than ever before. In the midst of his European run, d4vd also put on a show-stopping performance at the Valentino Men’s SS24 Fashion Week show in Milan.  

Today, the 18-year-old artist announces ‘The Lost Petals‘ EP out September 8 via Darkroom/Interscope.  The new EP is a collection of five songs that fit in the world of ‘Petals to Thorns‘ and serve as a continuation of that project. These songs represent a similar time in d4vd’s creative process that he wants to share with fans before moving into his next phase of music.
