Dubbed as ‘Australia’s answer to The Weeknd’, Rich Delinquent exited their 2020 with new single and video ‘Cocaine Late Nights’
Combining fragmented, futuristic synths and Rich’s emotion-drenched vocals, ‘Cocaine Late Nights’ is a heart-on-sleeve modern pop cut that sees the Melbourne artist tackle drug use and the toll it has taken on his relationships. The accompanying self-directed music video further accentuates the track’s dark, paranoid undertones.
‘Cocaine Late Nights’ follows acclaimed debut EP DM If You Need To, a five-track offering described by EDM World as a record that “everyone needs to hear from a promising young artist who’s destined for a great future”. It also features singles ‘Forget About Me’ and ‘It’s Cold Where I’m From’, Rich’s most successful tracks to date, which have amassed upwards of 500,000 combined Spotify streams.
Producing and singing on all of his tracks, Rich Delinquent burst onto the scene in 2019, emerging from the wreckage of a 90s sports car and subsequently demolishing the norm of pop music. Much like driving intoxicated, lines are blurred and new lanes appear where they weren’t before thanks to Rich’s fiercely unique sound and style.
‘Cocaine Late Nights’ sees Rich Delinquent at his most honest and affecting.
