|Delivering his plainspoken and relatable lyrics with an aching grace, Trevor Daniel‘s music reflects the uncertain emotion and tantalizing closeness of 21st century romantic relationships. Preparing his texturally rich sophomore effort, Trevor Daniel announces Restless, his upcoming EP. Aided by the production wizardry of Taz Taylor and his Internet Money crew, including producer Nick Mira (Juice WRLD’s top ten hit “Lucid Dreams”), Restless finds the Houston singer-songwriter exploring every facet of his relationships, from the inseparable start to the heart-wrenching finish. Taz Taylor and the rest of the Internet Money producers raise their game for Restless, detailing each speaker-knocking instrumental with pristine clarity and switching up the sound with whimsical musical flourishes. The follow-up to Trevor’s 2018 EP Homesick, which boasted the mournful breakout hit “Falling” (over 10 million total streams), Restless EP arrives on March 22nd via Internet Money/Alamo.
To accompany the announcement of the EP, Trevor shares “Paranoid,” the project’s lead single. Produced by Taz Taylor, TouchOfTrent, JRHITMAKER, JoL’z, and Wallis Lane, “Paranoid” kicks off with a vaguely-Latin guitar pattern in 6/8 time, before settling into a slow trap-style groove, complete with echoing guitars, snapping hi-hats, and otherworldly vocal samples. Trevor’s voice floats above the fray, weaving infectious melodies as he devolves into anxiety, obsessing over his significant other’s possible infidelity. Premiered by FLAUNT, “Paranoid” is another formidable entry into Trevor’s array of lovelorn ballads.
Fresh off a fast-selling tour with Yung Pinch, Trevor Daniel is the first signee to Internet Money Records, the new partnership between rising producer Taz Taylor and Alamo Records. A game-changing company in digital music, Taz Taylor started Internet Money as a beat-making company and collective through which producers could make beats and sell them a-la-carte to artists. As Internet Money grew, Taz Taylor became a well-respected songwriter and producer, signing a publishing deal with APG, shaping the sound of countless rising stars, producing four tracks on Lil Skies’ chart-topping Life of a Dark Rose, crafting the instrumental for the late XXXTentacion’s platinum-selling “Fuck Love” featuring Trippie Redd, and reaching #16 on the Billboard Hot 100 with Rich The Kid’s “Plug Walk.” Taz Taylor recently earned a GRAMMY®-nomination for his work on Drake’s top-selling Scorpion album.
