"Square One- Overdose"

Know those moments when you just want to leave your apartment or office and run so far away that you can’t recognize the streets or people anymore? Those moments fresh after a painful breakup, right after the point that you just stopped crying every other second of every single day, but still at the cusp of mourning where you’re still waking up with potent pains in the pit of your stomach that remind you that the love it was once filled with is no longer there. You know these moments, don’t you? The ones we like to use to reflect on relationships that just ended and cry a little bit about in the solace of our own religion; the very moments we use to play out the best parts of those relationships and miss them as if we will never experience anything that beautiful again in this life. Deep down inside we know that isn’t true, but what good is a breakup without the tears and sorrow? It just doesn’t have the same effect.

You’re indecisive, and cold
but I need you to know,
I can’t let you go,
I let you go.

“Overdose” by Long Island trifecta Square One makes me wish, today, that I had something to cry about because it exudes that melancholic mood that I love to mull over memories in. From deep down the lead singer’s diaphragm, straight up through his vocal chords the song makes me want to get up off this desk, walk out this building, hop on my skateboard and just ride, right now (noon in NYC) until the early morning just before the sun rises again tomorrow. It makes me wish that I had moments that I knew I would never get back with some beautiful girl that I could reflect on while using the city’s bridges, alleys, its streets, and the concrete, steel and glass landscapes as the scrolling background behind me while coasting through the profound tunnels of my own rumination.

Late night, wide eyes, blacked-out mind,
Like an overdose,
Like an overdose.

Press play and get ready to be immediately sucked in by vocals that are sang like a drug addict from his highest points, or, just a brokenhearted man who has been defeated by his own sorrows, dealing with his own seesaw of emotions while adjusting to the thoughts of having to, eventually, let go. - Et Musique Pour Tous

"Listen To Square One's "Where You Are""

Square One, a band from Long Island, dropped a new track called, “Where Yøu Are.” This breezy electronic-heavy track is perfect for those weekend trips to the beach. The 3 minute and 56 second song has a clean beat with a catchy hook, “Where Yøu Are,” which continually repeats throughout the song, embedding into your brain, long after it is no longer playing.

“Where Yøu Are” is not lyrically loaded, however the meaning is uniquely undefined, yet slightly subliminal, leaving you to look within and ponder where you are as a person. Nevertheless, this is one song that will hopefully help you find yourself. - Grungecake

"Square One- Everyway"

Square One is a Long Island based Hip-hop group comprised of three rappers/producers/singers. We go by the names of X, Atomic and RÅJ. Together the three of us offer melodic songs while still offering raw emotions through our lyrically crafted verses. We try not to fit into any mold or trend that is going on in the music industry, but rather create a unique blend of hip-hop and alternative music that is fresh and exciting. We started creating music together in 2010 and have crafted our own sound throughout the years. We are three 22 and 21 year olds with a lot of energy, drive and passion for what we do. We opened up for Action Bronson in 2011 at the Knitting Factory venue in Brooklyn and opened up for Kesha in Spring of 2015. - Hot New Hip-hop


Long Island, NY based Hip-Hop group, SquareOne performed a high-energy set last Thursday at Silvana in Harlem, NY for Anthem’s International Music Festival. Along with the other Hip-Hop, Alternative, R&B and conscious acts on the roster, SquareOne played to an eclectic and eccentric crowd of Harlem locals and music enthusiasts.
The entire five-song set packed a punch, but the crowd was blown away by notable tracks “What You Need,” “I Don’t Got The Time,” and “Sunday2Sunday.” - Mute Magazine


Still working on that hot first release.



Square One is a Long Island based Hip-hop group comprised of rapper, X, and rapper/producer, Atomic the Bomb. Our goal is to turn our real life experiences and opinions into creative songs that make you dance to the beat while we convey a deeper message. We try not to fit into any mold or trend that is going on in the music industry and tend to gravitate towards a unique blend of hip-hop and alternative music that is fresh and exciting.

We started making music together in 2010 and have since found a signature sound. At 22, our drive, passion and work ethic have enabled us to open for the acts of Ke$ha in 2015, and Action Bronson in 2011.
