“‘Black Elixir’ is our play on the theme of Black girl magic. Our perspectives as Black women and our desire to uplift our fellow Black girls was very much at the forefront of our minds.” – MELONYX stated

MELONYX draws influences from the worlds of hip-hop, neo-soul, and lovers rock. Their tracks are the embodiment of a series of recurring conversations between MELONYX throughout their friendship and time working together.
