The Chicago native artist, Pronto Valid, has released his new summer-time EP titled, ‘MIDNITE FLOWERS.’ The project gives an introspective look into the artist and his current mental and emotional state. The raw and gritty lyricism on all four tracks present a first-person take on the reality of being an artist in a day and age where entertainers and their mental health are taken for granted.
On the opening song, ‘GOAT,’ Pronto speaks on his humble-yet-hungry mindset that pushes his efforts as a musician, while taking a deeper look into why he has this mindset. Lyrics like, ‘Soldier in my blood- in my DNA, I got some blood that’ll never be buried no matter the prices they willing to pay,’ speak to his Bosnian-American roots. His reference to ‘blood that will never be burried’ is about his family members who were killed or went missing during the Balkan Wars in the 90’s as a result of genocide. Despite all of the hate and fake love, what keeps him motivated is his willingness to push past it all and reach high levels of success for his family that never had a chance to live out their lives.
The third song of the project, ‘GET AWAY,’ introduces a much more calm and introspective feeling throughout the EP. On this track, he explains his introvertedness as a result of cutting off childhood peers whose personality traits were toxic to his creative process as an artist and mental health as an individual. With very direct lyricism, he states; ‘If I could paint a perfect picture it would change with every peak, every glance, every minute, hour, second as we speak, There’s someone looking at it now who’s just like you and can’t be pleased, Always giving your critiques, With the same old shit you talked about at seventeen, Ain’t did shit since seventeen.’
To contrast with his sharp lyrics, the artist employs a laid-back style of production that aims to give you the feeling of a late night during the Summer. The washed-out synths in the background of his song, ‘DIE YOUNG,’ and the flagship song of the project, ‘AFTER HOURS,’ give a perfect example of the vibe he aims for while providing a strong kick/bass combo that sonically anchor all of the other elements of the songs and brings the project together.
