R.LUM.R is offering the kind of electronic chops that don’t come often to Nashville. His Frank Ocean-style vocals perfectly compliment the R&B sound and aesthetic that characterizes his work. His lyrics are soulful, frustrated tails of internal emotional chaos, love lost, and existential confusion. “Frustrated” serves as a perfect example of the kind of poetic lyricism central to his work, “You give me your kaleidoscope in monochrome / so unlike the way you color me at home / some days it’s so vivid / but mostly I would rather be blind”. The irony of this lyric is that, of course, he isn’t blind, but facing heartbreaking loss and confusion head-on. R.LUM.R’s work is categorically bold not only because of its unique sonic makeup but because the lyrical content refuses to leave anything in the dark. Be sure to catch his show tonight at Mercy Lounge with BIYO.
