New Orleans native, Hirakish, is proving his skill-set ranges far past strutting down the Hood by Air runway with the release of his first solo track "Liquid Geezus." The fiery, emotional single paints an intimate portrait of lost love over an alluring combination of heavy bass and guitar. Hirakish told Dazed that "In the song, the tale’s main character wishes to go back to the love of his life, as he is on his way to die on a cross for her. The reason why the song is called "Liquid Geezus" is because, by dying, me and the character are creating a new rock sound – and most rock stars of the last decade, they all died at the age 27.”

Hirakish initially gained notoriety when he wowed the crowd as he flailed down the runway at HBA's AW16 show. Now, the musician, actor, and singer is launching his solo career with a killer hit, the remembers the loss of Prince and David Bowie.
