“And this one is about my ex,” says Native Youth over the microphone at her Second Chances EP release party this past Thursday at The Bar at 1306. The crowd was full of fans of the Native Youth brand, people who just wanted to hear some good music, and there’s always a drunk girl in the back. Between breaking genre and sexuality identification “rules” (whatever those are) lies Miami’s Native Youth and her second EP. Sitting at eight songs long, the project gives you a full story for Native’s love life with an ex, that apparently she still chats on the phone with from time to time. Earlier in the month, we received Understatement featuring J.K the Reaper which set the tone for the release over the weekend. Kaixen took lead with production, but we can’t forget the love shown from Triangles, Party Talk, and Manny Galvez. In all, Native Youth captures the essence of alternative R&B with lingering lyrics and story telling that will have you in your feels all day.
