Some people in quarantine might be able to relate too well to the hook on johan lenox's "reckless": "Day drinking got me feeling reckless." The producer and vocalist creates a woozy track that's also invigorating to encourage starting the party early in the day. In an email, he explained how his admiration of the eclectic nature on Kanye West's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy inspired his current style and this song: "I don't think most people would think to pair my phrygian-mode violin fanfare with Key!'s delirious wailing or Young Nudy's manic sputtering, and that's why I like the idea so much. Their particular vocal styles are critical to achieving the wide tonal range that I wanted for this record."
The video offers a look into the mind of Lenox as he day dreams on a train. We dare you to make sense of it between the obscure stack of red cups and a tricycle.
