In a world where artistic expression often serves as a unique form of communication, Jeremy shares, “I made something no one asked for.

Recorded within the walls of his Brooklyn apartment, the EP draws inspiration from diverse influences, including Mitski, Slow Pulp, Just Mustard, and Tanuchikan. Each track becomes a carefully crafted piece of a musical mosaic, reflecting the artist’s journey of love and self-expression. Among the standout tracks, “I’m Sorry Your Job Sucks” emerges as a poignant narrative, offering a comforting embrace to those navigating the complexities of work and life. “Paradise” paints a sonic landscape of euphoria, while “Hope the Discman Tucked in My Seat Doesn’t Fly out Round This Curve” unfolds as a whimsical journey, echoing the sentiment of holding on to precious moments. Jeremy’s approach to the songs is akin to a painter working with a palette dominated by love and appreciation. “I attempted to approach a song like a painter,” he explains. “I wanted to, say, paint in all blue and see what I could make given the skills I have.” The result is a collection of tracks that resonate with authenticity and sincerity.

To keep the EP a surprise until the actual anniversary, Lloyd-Styles humorously shares, “Keeping this thing a secret from her has been pretty brutal. I am just gummed up talking about BS until I can spring this baby on her.”In his own words, Jeremy encapsulates the essence of “2K80410”: “We’re bodies of atoms vibrating, and, technically there is more space and emptiness than actual atoms. Hopefully, this album vibrates in a pleasing way with some folks’ atoms and fills in some of that emptiness.” As the EP emerges into the world, it not only promises musical enjoyment but invites listeners into a heartfelt narrative, connecting through the universal language of love and shared experiences. Dive into the sonic embrace of “2K80410,” where each track serves as a chapter in the lyrical love story of Jeremy Lloyd-Styles.
