Stepping out into his own spotlight, NYC-based singer, actor, model, dancer and artist Infinite Coles releases his debut EP Destiny. A powerful first offering from the singer-songwriter, Destiny has a dual meaning for Infinite, who named the EP after his late twin sister. The project is centered around Infinite’s reclamation of his individual destiny and the manifestation of his late sister’s soul that lives within him and has inspired the unique artist we see emerge today. Colored with a complex familial history that includes being the heir to one of hip-hop’s most revolutionary musical acts, Infinite today arrives signaling his readiness to carve out his own musical journey.
Written and recorded over the last few years, across studios in NYC and London, the EP is a triumphant, break-out moment for the young singer, who worked with multi-instrumentalist Bryndon Cook a.k.a. Starchildon the project, which features NYC rapper Wiki, Infinite’s cousin Moon and Beyonce collaborator CKTRL, Coby Sey, Sampha, and Lisa-Kaindé from Ibeyi.
“Eschewing conformity and simply being who he is has been the most influential force in his career,” explains Nylon Magazine in a 2017 interview with the artist. Having previously starred in the 2015 short-film Gang, which led to appearances in Fenty Beauty, FOLX Health and Apple campaigns, the rising star cut his teeth on the NYC underground-nightlife scene performing as a dancer and actor, while quietly developing his songwriting. In 2017 Infinite appeared on Richard Russell’s collaborative album project Everything Is Recorded and has since made multiple appearances on the project, while in 2019 he appeared on Joy Orbison’s 2019 EP slippling, and Mella Dee’s 2021 release A Little Longer (Whistle Posse). He is currently being portrayed as himself on this season of the Wu-Tang: An American Saga television show on Hulu.
