boyband Releases "get home safely," With All Proceeds Going to NAACP Legal Defense Fund and RAINN

Earlier this year saw the release of "Death Note," an adrenaline-pumping debut from Los Angeles-based producer and artist boyband that was fit to be a Top 10 anime opening. The single showcased boyband in a new light, as the Grammy-nominated producer for Gunna, Young Thug, and Lil Nas X stepped out from behind the producing chair and into his own adventurous artist project. It is a newfound creative depth that the Los Angeles producer and artist continues to explore in his latest single, "get home safely."

"get home safely" is as much a response to recent events as it is a response to a deep-seated anxiety. Released via Dirty Hit Records, the same label that has brought us The 1975, beabadoobee, and Pale Waves, boyband makes his way through a captivating amalgamation of hip-hop and late-stage emo influences, all while throwing out lines like "Don't get caught at a traffic stop / 'Cause they might blast you." The line pays reference to Philando Castile, who in 2016 became yet another victim of police violence after being pulled over for a traffic stop.  

Backed by a driving electric guitar and raw vocal delivery, "get home safely" touches on such themes of police brutality, profiling, and sexual abuse with equal parts fear and anger. The sentiment is a daring reflection of our reality. boyband spoke further on the new single, sharing,

“At this moment, a lot of long term issues within our country are being exposed on a widespread  scale - this song is just a manifestation of the anger many of us feel on these things. I wanted to bring together two issues that hit me the most through a common thread. So many black people in this country have the fear of losing their lives in broad daylight because of police brutality and profiling. So many women in the world are fearful of being taken advantage of by men. I just want to live in a world where that paranoia is no more.

The change starts within the countless organizations that exist to set things in place to help communities and survivors of the way our world is set up. As one person, I can only be the change I’d like to see in the world. Helping these organizations can make the changes tangible and change lives.”

All proceeds raised by boyband and Dirty Hit from the release of "get home safely" will be donated to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund and RAINN, the largest nonprofit anti-sexual assault organization in the US.
