A live delivery would almost certainly prove to be a crowd pleaser – not least of all for that final vocal outpouring, and the electric guitar riff that helps drive it all through with vibrancy and weight.
Very much channelling a Lumineers vibe, we get treated to a guitar solo, subtle layer of busy backing vocals, additional percussion, a dead stop… yup, there is loads going on, but it doesn’t feel like it. It feels great!
The sweetness of the soundscape is matched by the character and flair of the leading voice; familiarity and freshness intertwine, and meanwhile genre labels are thrown aside as the sheer pleasure of well-crafted, intentional music fills the room.
The further you get into What You Need, the more immersive and quite mind-blowing that performance becomes. The final verse is off the charts and concludes the experience and the purpose of the track in a brilliant way.
More Than Sex is one of his best to emerge yet – the quality and the heart that has gone into the writing is mighty. A definite hit for 2019 and one well worth adding to the long-term playlist.
This style is undoubtedly influenced by the alternative or somewhat less mainstream aspects of hip hop. Things get creative in an uninhibited manner, Jxhn Crxw performs – he doesn’t just read lyrics to you, nor does he improvise with meaningless ideas or no intention.
There’s something refreshingly artistic and satisfying about this approach to songwriting and indeed to hip hop – the genre doesn’t confine, but rather, it offers a runway; from which committed and capable artists can take off into any realm of music they choose.
What keeps this project united within its intentions and sentiments is a shared goal and a shared creative freedom when it comes to music. The EP is instrumentally eclectic, which is rare.
Drawing upon professionalism & creativity in equal parts, Untitled Art is building a sound that’s his & that lures you over from a distance & keeps you involved for the long run.
Yahudy provides a fully complex, varied experience throughout this project, and his songwriting is refreshingly intuitive. He’s well on his way to building something wonderful with his sound & his career.
Artdayn has made sure to write a piece that flows like crashing waves; relentless & always bringing in something slightly different or new. Alongside of this intense & memorable beat, it works well to make certain you know his sound & his style.
The effects make it feel as if you’re seeing something you shouldn’t be, leaked footage maybe, which adds to that element of drama & makes sense alongside of the song’s subject matter.
