At 21 years old, alternative experimental artist Hurt Season is already familiar with the concept of evolution. Previously known by the moniker HRT SZN, he feels like the new name and project is a more accurate reflection of himself – someone who is less afraid of criticism and more willing to be authentic. Where HRT SZN conformed, hurt season is breaking out of the box.
Hurt Season’s new single “datreesh” is out now everywhere and is the second of many new tracks the alt hip-hop artist will be releasing in the near future. The track and music video have been featured on Wordplay and HipHopDX.
“’datreesh’ contains many emotions I experienced through my last breakup – ‘treesh’ meaning b****. The intent of the song is to say my parting words, without directly addressing who they are for.” hurt season’s combination of emotional, meaningful lyrics on top of a catchy mellow beat makes for a heavy hitter.
Music has been a safe space for hurt season since childhood, where his family would cruise around Mexico listening to the smooth electric guitar of Santana. Even now, whenever chaos is ensuing around him, he revisits those memories and collects himself by creating new music to process. Since he was 15, hurt season has utilized songwriting as a way to connect – with himself, with fans, with those close to him.
Inspired by the likes of XXXtentacion, 7981 Kal, and Pierce the Veil, hurt season’s music follows his experience of finding a healthy outlet through creating. After hitting a personal low, he has sought out a life through music that allows him to try, fail, and grow.
