An ambient guitar riff, simple and hypnotic, sets the mood with ease for this emo-rap-kissed yet rhythmically engaging new track from Dylan Rhodez.
Musicality aside for a moment, Rhodez has a uniquely raspy, breathy vocal tone, and a writing style that’s refreshingly honest and emotional. The verses pour through with genuine affection and realness – long-form bars that blend rap and melody in a relevantly contemporary way.
After this, the hook falls into place beautifully, resolving in an addictive way – a trait reinforced by the poetic concept of addiction in the lyrics.
Blend all of this with the likability of the soundscape – an organic lightness alongside an equally gentle yet faster-paced trap beat – and the whole thing feels perfectly in tune with the sound of the moment; yet also brilliantly interesting, in terms of Rhodez’ clear sense of identity as an artist. Nicely done.
