Maple Syrup Tears – [Huron John]

Chicago native Huron John returns to our pages today with the delivery of yet another warm, mesmerizing single titled “Maple Syrup Tears.” The young artist keeps things predominately tight as he is very self-sufficient and keeps all of the work; songwriting, production, and recording, to himself. The production on “Maple Syrup Tears” is simple, but it compliments John’s remarkable vocal production and touching lyrics extremely well. For him, “Maple Syrup Tears is about embracing the failures of adolescent love, but still keeping it danceable.” He said that “it’s a song about getting a little too self-reflective, but in the way that you learn a little something new. Bouncy drums, and a hook that’s supposed to be as sticky as that aforementioned brown pancake sauce,” John explained. “It’s a song about first’s, and the perspective that those first’s give us.” Huron John shows no signs of slowing down and according to his team, he has plans to release many more incredible records before summer hits this year.

The visual below, in my opinion, showcases John’s captivating uniqueness and artistic ability as there isn’t one scene that feels like someone or something that’s already been done. Furthermore, “it follows a thematic format of a fantasy video game; encapsulating the warped and rainbow world that John’s music lives in.” Lastly and most importantly, “this visual is intended to be a glimpse into the universe that Apocalypse WOW describes: an overly-saturated portal that transports you directly back to whatever your definition of the ‘good-old-days’ is.” Be sure to get familiar with Huron John and his upcoming project …
