On January 1, 2022, he dropped four brand new tracks to SoundCloud. The set opens with the unapologetic, “Fuck Love.” On the track the singer delivers a musical F-U to his ex. The song’s hard lyrics are countered by an emotional Indie Pop guitar track riding a laid-back Trap beat.
The melancholy Emo Trap “Blue Moon” follows. A mellow minor key guitar progression accompanies the singer as he sings of suicidal thoughts and ‘sad boi season.’ “Get Rid” continues some of those lyrical themes over a nice mix of acoustic guitar and strings. SQ sings of getting rid of his emotions and starting over.
The set closes with “Wrong.” A dark Alternative Rock guitar picks and strums over a deep rumbling bass and a hard Trap beat. Meanwhile SQ sings and raps about troubles with drink, drugs, family and friends. He looks back wistfully, wondering where it all went wrong.
