Mighty PLUTO and DD Brooks join forces for this emo rap and trap fusion with a clear edge of emotive intention – In My Thoughts tackles self-discovery and uncertainty in a fresh way.
Featuring a dreamy soundscape and contrastingly heavy yet effected vocals, the track has a calm, hypnotic feel but offers up a series of fairly intense reflections on the self.
Contemplation of the bigger issues in life is the heart of the release, and it’s something the vast majority have been dealing with over the last two years.
Thanks to the openness of both artists, and the welcomed dynamic between bars and verses that keeps things interesting, there’s a sense of understanding and likable escapism to the completed piece.
Musically unique, particularly during the final third, In My Thoughts promises a subtly catchy hook but more notably an overall mood and moment that connects on a genuine, deeply human level. The whole thing manages to fit the sound of the scene, yet also mean something authentic. Nicely done.
