Abraham, Israel, Angel and Thalia “Momo” Boyd are all siblings and the children of musicians. They grew up in Detroit surrounded by music as their parents founded the Boys & Girls Choirs of Detroit.
“Music is our way of life; growing up, it was one of the major vehicles to our development as people,” Abraham told Essence Girls United.
“Because we are family, we have a similar foundation to build off,” Thalia added. “At the end of the day, we have a similar goal and messaging of what we want to say to the world.”
Infinity Song puts an emphasis on live instruments and vocals to deliver soft rock melodies. For over a decade, they performed in several public locations across New York City, where they relocated when they were children.
The band signed with JAY-Z’s record label Roc Nation in 2016 and was advised by the rapper to stay true to their musical roots. Today, the band is taking the road and will be performing at venues in Chicago, Los Angeles and Brooklyn this upcoming October.
“Haters Anthem” has garnered millions of views on social media. It is their first original song to go viral.
“We’ve had songs go viral that we’ve covered that aren’t our original work, and that always feels good, but when our own original songs are being used and shared and loved in this way, it just feels gratifying as artists,” Israel said.
Thalia, who penned the song, said she wanted the satirical piece to address internal dissatisfaction that we may carry openly.
“The motivation for the song was because I was living that; it’s not pointing the finger and saying ‘shame on you,’ it’s shame on me, and everyone can relate to that,” she said. “It’s not from a place of being better. It’s something that I’ve gone through.”
“We’re having a conversation about how [being a hater] is almost natural to our human condition,” Abraham added. “Hating is as natural to humans as air; from the beginning of time, it was something we were doing and had to grow past.”
