Immediately grabbing attention for its melodic softness and dreamlike aura in general, 4klyoungin keeps things intimate and genuine on this emotive, honest new single So Much.
Leading with a quickly likable beat, blending creative freedom of choice with the contemporary rhythms of hip hop and trap, alongside a vocal that pours through almost like a freestyle, the song is incredibly passionate, and lays bare a sense of vulnerability that’s easy to connect with.
4klyoungin commits to the performance, without a doubt. Despite the optimism of the soundscape, the delivery is incredibly poignant, loaded with heart, soul, and struggle, and consistently the lyrics resolve back to this central concept of pain.
Offering a decidedly home-made recording quality, So Much speaks volumes on behalf of dedication to the craft and authenticity. While there’s a contemporary emo-rap core to the arrangement, this fusion of melody and rap, there’s also plenty that tips its hat to individuality and artistry. Hopefully that’s a quality that will continue to shine and connect throughout his releases.
Great sound design, lyrical focus and passion, a meandering delivery that keeps things interesting and open. Nicely done.
