INTRODUCING: EX MYKAH

Apr 20 2018

Debut single “Berlin Lies” out today
Pushing a potent cut of narcotic pop, Ex Mykah’s debut single “Berlin Lies” explores the idea of losing oneself to the city’s hedonistic allure. Couched in the sultry slink of Hip-Hop/R&B and ethereal leftfield pop that is both odd and catchy, his debut single gives us the first intriguing peek into his forthcoming debut this fall.
