Xodiac’s music has been a combined bag to date. The chanted Throw A Cube despatched my head spinning, whereas the fizzy pop of Particular Love delivered a welcome sugar rush. Pre-release Lemonade lands someplace within the center, pulling components from each extremes.
On its face, Lemonade is a cool mid-tempo with robust hip-hop components and a little bit of Latin rhythm thrown in for good measure. It’s well-performed, however the hook is simply too repetitive and foolish to work. “Lemonade” makes for an ungainly metaphor, and the track’s manufacturing and melodies aren’t robust sufficient to counter the distracting lyrics. All of it feels fairly banal — a boy-group-song-by-numbers that was probably handed on by different businesses earlier than touchdown in Xodiac’s studio. They simply want stronger materials.
