VMK - Pacing - Stereo Stickman

VMK Pacing


Raw indie rock vibes lead us into a fast-paced rap track loaded with personal angst and varying vocal inflections for a heavy, genre-blending new release.

Rising up into heavy metal realms yet keeping the vocal clear, clean-cut and up front, VMK’s Pacing feels like a contemporary fusion of hip hop and rock. It holds close to a clear sense of grit, yet also follows a rhythmically appealing structure that meets the changing pace of the soundscape with ease.

While there’s a notably home-made feel to the recording, this gives it a certain authenticity. The passion in VMK’s delivery matches that of the lyrics – this honest and resentful outpouring, bringing together personal empowerment and distain throughout a fairly breathless, relentless performance.

The whole thing feels like a freestyle but with a pre-planned set-up in terms of the changing tone and pace of the voice. Hints of melody contrast out-right raps, and meanwhile VMK holds nothing back as he details the turmoil and determination of his story.

Undoubtedly unique, that’s for sure – a recognisable voice and a musicality that leans in its own direction. It will be interesting to hear where else the music takes things in the near future.
