AUGUST 08 - Minivan (Live) | Vevo DSCVR

AUGUST 08 - Minivan. An exclusive performance for Vevo DSCVR, the channel for the best in new music.

The final track on AUGUST 08’s new ‘Seasick’ LP is a plaintive tune called “Minivan.” From the arpeggio acoustic guitar and its opening couplet, “I can see your old house from here/Doesn’t feel the same without you near,” one could be forgiven for getting Olivia Rodrigo’s "drivers license" vibes. The free-thinking LA native, however, quickly subverts any and all notions of Disney purity with follow-up lines recalling hazy nights drinking E&J brandy and shooting dice. ‘Seasick’ is the prolific AUGUST’s third project of 2022, a restatement of the wise, fierce, thoughtful, and limitless scope of his futuristic R&B palette. Active in the LA music scene for a couple years now, he honed his craft in a humble Koreatown home studio. His pen and production skills earned commissions crafting tracks for DJ Khaled, Chance the Rapper, and Kali Uchis. As AUGUST 08, he’s featured with a variety of heroes - Jhene Aiko, Schoolboy Q, and 88Rising crew among them. “I’ve always been the person who goes against what everybody else feels,” he explains about his work. Even his DSCVR performance moves in different directions. “Minivan” is a moving ballad. Meanwhile the trotting rhythm of “Role Models" will def getcha moving. Keep an eye out for this dude, he can pop up anywhere you turn.
