We first heard of Crybaby when the melancholic ‘WKNDS’ landed in our inbox. After making music in solitude for six years, he decided in February to start sharing his work with the world, blending trap kicks and hi hats, moody lyrics and guitar strings.
“The aim of this project from the start was to remain anonymous. I’ve always uploaded music from myself onto Soundcloud under my real name and found I was getting a biased opinion because naturally some people like you and others don’t.
“I decided I’d like my music to speak for itself now after many years and that completely removing myself from the picture helps to get people to show how they really feel about something I’ve made.
“Lyrically I like how I can express myself now as people aren’t judging me personally for some of the topics I talk about.”
