Dead Hendrix and Yungcudii capture the sound of the moment, with a clever and catchy hook, immersive production, and deeply personal bars, for MUSTANG.
Featuring superb contrast from the sound-design of a heavily distorted chorus to the more mellow presentation of the verses, as well as intertwining melody and rap in line with the current hip hop scene, Mustang maintains versatility throughout its three-minute thirty-three lifespan.
Both Yungcudii and Dead Hendrix inject character and story into the process, delivering a likable dynamic again by way of the contrast between the two voices and performance styles.
Undeniably infectious, sharp and memorable conceptually yet also seemingly light-hearted enough to connect with a broader audience, Mustang goes on to bring in fearlessly revealing verses – instances of vulnerability that help raise the bar and offer a clear sense of heart and purpose.
Creatively achieving a strong balance between a hooky central groove and a more meaningful undertone, Mustang provides both an indefinite ear-worm, and a more thought-provoking story that connects for its humanity and personality.
