Flynn Johnson Tackles Toxic Relationships on New Odd Numbers Collab ‘Born in a Barn’

Following the release of ‘Parkgate Street’ with Graham in January, producer Odd Numbers  returns with the second single from his upcoming EP, Colours. ‘Born in a Barn’ sees Dublin rapper Flynn Johnson address the act of ‘leaving the door open’ in relationships. Backed by a  smooth, Neo-Soul groove, the rapper creates depth with philosophical rhymes and  introspective storytelling, showcasing a range of emotions from apathy to aggression as he  searches for closure. 

Flynn Johnson: “The song paints an intense picture of relationships in today’s generation. The  way no one’s really ‘together’ or exclusive and everyone’s dealing with commitment issues.  Hence, the door is always being left open.” 

The single is the second of five tracks that will be included in Odd Numbers’ upcoming EP,  Colours. Funded by the Arts Council of Ireland, the project is an exploration of Jazz-Hop and  Neo-Soul and will be the first official release on the producer’s newly established label, Golden  Éire Records. An artist-focused venture, Golden Éire Records aims to connect the dots  between the country’s numerous cliques and collectives — serving its audience with a highly  curated selection of music, live events, and video content showcasing the best that Ireland  has to offer. Odd Numbers: “Collaboration plays such a huge role in my music and I’ll be doubling down  on my efforts to work with and support Irish artists in 2023, both as a producer and as a label  head. I’m eternally grateful to the Arts Council for their continued support with this pursuit.
