Stylishly uniting pop-punk vocals with emo-rap melodies and a brilliantly uplifting, progressive soundscape, Cam Rostami impresses both creatively and conceptually with this latest single and video.
Designed to be an artistic recreation of a scooter accident in which Cam Rostami broke his arm and his face, You Got It proves to be an energizing, addictively rhythmic and engaging alternative anthem. The fusion of genres is refreshing, as is the connection between these vague, poetic lyrics and the underlying depth and realism of the song.
At the same time, there’s plenty about the sound and style that feels comfortingly nostalgic, and Cam walks that line between distinguished and already recognisable with faultless confidence and creative freedom.
Brilliant song-writing and production, in short, with a simple, home-made video to match. An easy must for the long-term playlist, and hopefully a strong introduction to an artist paving his own way within an uninhibited contemporary musical landscape.
