Los Angeles-based rapper Gavlyn released her last full-length album, Modest Confidence, back in 2014. Now she has announced plans for an upcoming project, titled Make Up For Your Break Up. In case you aren’t familiar with Gavlyn, her music is inspired in equal parts by old school hip hop, music from the ’60s, and ’70s funk. She has previously released material on Los Angeles-based indie label Broken Complex.
Today, we’re premiering the music video for her track “Black Cherry Kool-Aid,” a Sef-one and Lou Koo-produced single that will appear on her forthcoming album. “I wrote this track based on a personal experience I had with a dude I was dating,” Gavlyn told us over email. “It ended up that he already had a girlfriend, so I wrote the song for women in similar situations to say that there will be something better for them out there and they should never settle or compromise. The music video treatment was written by Blimes and myself.”
This release also marks the inauguration of Gavlyn and musician Blimes’ new imprint, Peach House. The label will serve as a place for both artists to release their own material, in addition to being a home for other musicians. Gavlyn’s forthcoming album, Make Up For Your Break Up, is set for release on Novebmer 13 via Peach House and will feature production from Teklife member TASO, as well as a feature from Anderson .Paak.
