Interested in music early on, Mills became attracted to the harmonic tones and lyrics of alternative and indie music by way of bands The Killers and Death Cab for Cutie. Broadening his sphere of influence, he eventually became obsessed with Kid Cudi and his idol Kanye West, but has allowed rock music to remain a key component in his own material. It is in this way that Mills solidifies his individuality; fusing and integrating antithetic sounds that deviate from what the public ear has become accustomed to. ”The thing is I’m never going to change my sound,” asserts the rapper who often raps over entire indie rock tracks, rather than just sampling parts of the original beat. ”I’m never going to make music that I don’t want to make. It’s just a matter of people liking it. So far they do.” The artist knows a good song when he hears it, spitting rhymes over emerging indie group Foster the People’s popular song “Houdini” and Gouplove’s feel-good hit “Colours.” His knack for metaphorically pleasing lyrics full of clever pop-culture references and puns doesn’t hurt either. Although the fresh talent is not signed to a record label yet, it is merely only a matter of time. Meanwhile, he recently signed with Sony/ATV Music Publishing and is gearing up to drop his mixtape Phases come this spring/summer while simultaneously recording his debut album. Both the mixtape and album will be completely original, featuring an entirely new sound, and it is that experimental enthusiasm and willingness to take risks that tells us we’ll be hearing more from the promising young star.
