19-year-old rising hybrid alt-pop-rapper and singer-songwriter, TheHxliday releases the dreary Gen Z love themed video for “Batgirl,” just in time for Valentine’s day via Motown Records.
The video was directed by Steve Matiasek and Alexander Tsakis Lepkowski. It finds TheHxliday channeling his suave Bruce Wayne persona. He dons a black leather jacket swooning his batgirl in his somber bat cave.
The Ikon Pyor and Flex Lennon produced track is the epitome of TheHxliday’s signature emo leaning teenaged love sound with a touch of rock and a soothing soft-strumming guitar. TheHxliday sings “Before I met you, I was sad as shit,” revealing to his batgirl that she’s helped ease his emotions. “Batgirl” follows the video to his R&B-influenced banger “Nxbody.”
TheHxliday is ready to ascend to stardom. True to his name, TheHxliday kicked off 2021 with a celebration, dropping the Batbxy EP on New Year’s Day. The 19-year-old Baltimore artist demonstrates an uncanny knack for infectious, otherworldly melodies across the release’s six tracks, swooning and singing with an uplifting energy that belies the pain expressed in the lyrics.
Early singles like the moody “Thank U” and the carefree “Laugh A Little“–whose cinematic video dropped on Christmas Day–show off the young songwriter’s knack for making both struggles and triumphs feel ecstatic.
