Rapper and artist COLL impresses with ease throughout this musically eclectic, intentional and engaging new EP Blue Magic 2.
Kicking into gear with a brilliantly optimistic and colorful THE KEYS, the project quickly reminds listeners of the vocal clarity, wordplay and rhythm of the artist – the COLL sound has meaning, depth, and emerges with clear confidence and without the need for simple volume or quirks.
At the same time, the soundscapes throughout this short project are superb, eclectic in maintaining your attention, yet always holding close to the natural style and story-telling of COLL.
TELL ME NOTHING follows on with a darker, more retro mood, but equal creativity, another varied vocal flow – complete with theatrical and cinematic details that keep things gripping. Quirky rhymes meet with genuine scene-setting for another captivating outpouring.
We also get a touch of soulful RnB for an addictively pop-soaked ONE DAY, and a welcomed injection of motivation and self-belief for a melodically satisfying and inspiring WINNER to bring things to a memorable finish.
BLUE MAGIC 2 is an easy choice right now, crystal clear production and performances, great writing – every bit as refreshing and uplifting as the brightness of the artwork implies, and perfectly well-suited to this particular time in our lives.
