The self-deprecating brainchild of Walker Robinson, Your Neighbors – fuses unassuming genre influences in his beautifully intricate latest single "Rx," continuing to add to his arsenal of a discography.
"Rx" showcases a fusion of dark wonky synths, alt-influenced electrics, and vibrant vocal melodies – transforming a somber subject matter into an uplifting anthem to scream in the car. Produced by OPFLORA and Will DuPerier, you hear an unmatched chemistry, with exotic sounds and arrangements, providing a sturdy backbone for Robinson to express his worries and doubts. Now marking a full year since the pandemic outbreak, patience is at an all-time low, and reasonably so, Walker numbs his own pain with his musical expression, touching on the highs and lows of substance abuse. Robinson sings in the hook,
"Sleep all day,
On cheap vacation,
I'm so sedated,
With a clever selection of "Rx" as the title referencing prescription drugs, Robinson executed a subject matter mentioned a thousand times over in a uniquely genre-pushing manner, yet not straying too far from the pop lane. It's been about a year since I first began following Your Neighbors, and with every new release, I hear an additional element introduced to his sound. Currently working on an album, it's hard to know what to expect on this new body of work, but I can take a solid guess that it's going to be good.
