‘Lemonade’ is brought to us by TWIN XL, and they don’t seem to be stopping anytime soon. With this song, following up their catchy ‘Problematic’ track, we’re curious as to what else they are intent on exploring! While the songs may be fun, the lyrics and intent behind them have been serious issues. ‘Problematic’– that’s an easy one, but ‘Lemonade?’ Just what does this music video have in store for us?
On December 18th, like stepping into a time machine, the groovy vibes of TWIN XL gave us the feeling of coming back home. They have such a unique sound and look we can’t help but feel like dancing. The room, colors, and set up look very similar to ‘Problematic.’ It gives us the feeling that this isn’t the last we’ll hear of this band. ‘Lemonade’ is sure to strike a chord with you on some level.
"so I chase my old highs find some new lows when the wind blows I’m Chicago I should really learn learn to let go learn to let go"
Whether it’s an old flame or a bad habit, we can’t help but chase nostalgia relentlessly. In chasing that high, we find we’ve come to an even lower point than before by just wanting to feel something. We’re loving the vagueness that’s open to interpretation in this track. Art is so relevant because it can change its shape for whoever listens.
need more than sugar in my lemonade

But it’s going to take more than just a little sugar to fix this lemonade drink. Although these tunes are light and airy it looks to be a way to make the truth easier to swallow. Check out what Cameron had to say on the song:
‘Lemonade’ is about being caught in a vicious cycle of self medication and subsequently feeling completely void of emotion. During those moments I generally tend to push away the people I care about most in effort to not take them down with me. Although, I certainly don’t believe that masking pain and emotion in any capacity is a healthy thing to do – it’s a rabbit hole I find myself in far too often and a cycle I’m persistently trying to break. We collaborated with writer/producers Heavy (Jason Merris Bell and Jordan Miller) on this one. They have worked on songs with lovelytheband, Unlikely Candidates, The Score and tons of other bands that we love. They brought some incredible energy to the table and it was really fun to step outside of our comfort zone a bit and try some new things on this song.
