Blending powerful sound-design with addictive rhythms in everything from bassline to beat to vocal progression, WEIGHTLESS proves an unforgettable alternative anthem, uniting aspects of mainstream melodic inspiration and those of the alternative hip hop realm.
Featuring quietly-mixed vocals of short lines and powerful images, WEIGHTLESS manages to feel both hypnotically ambient and heavy. The delivery is calm yet breathless, the music intense yet dreamy, almost eighties-esque on occasion, with multiple layers of tribal vocals, synths and drum hits all raining down beautifully.
Coming in at just short of the four-minute mark, WEIGHTLESS grips the listener for the extent of its journey. While the latter half sees the bars collide and tumble down quite chaotically, the embrace of the soundscape still contrasts this, and the overall effect leaves you keen to listen back from the start.
Emotive and energising, bold and memorable, WEIGHTLESS lights up the new album with style, and injects a fresh twist on what’s truly possible within freely creative modern rap.
