BROCKHAMPTON – IF YOU PRAY RIGHT

BROCKHAMPTON have revitalised and redefined what it is to be a “boy band” over the past year years. With four stellar projects under their belt, the supergroup are in the process of rolling out album number five, which is titled ‘Ginger’ and features previously released single ‘I Been Born Again’. On follow up single ‘IF YOU PRAY RIGHT’, which is accompanied by a futuristic Spencer Ford directed visual, the members work their magic once more with slick production and equally cool verses from the likes of Dom McLennon, Joba, Matt Champion and Merlyn Wood.

Abhi The Nomad – House of Clocks

Madras born, Austin based artist Abhi The Nomad shares the eclectic ‘House of Clocks’, taken from his forthcoming ‘Modern Trash’ album. Having lived in eight countries by the time he was twenty one, it comes as no surprise that Abhi The Nomad’s music is a globally conscious commentary on our planet’s current state. That’s exactly the case with ‘House of Clocks’, an otherwise spirited track which touches on environmental issues and how we still have a long way to go in saving the planet. Check out ‘House of Clocks’ here and be sure to keep an eye out of ‘Modern Trash’ when it drops later this year.

Latrell James – Tracphone

Boston based rapper Latrell James is a playful poet, and his latest single ‘Tracphone’ (a pay-as-you-go mobile) is the perfect example of this. Likewise, previously heard single ‘Okay’, ‘Today’ and ‘Mona Lisa Bonet’ encompass a similar aesthetic whilst maintaining an element of freshness throughout. On ‘Tracphone’, James’ lackadaisical flow and delivery circumvent the deeper messages that line his wordplay as he raps about the shape shifting landscape in his life.

Aaron May – Let Go

Seventeen year-old rapper and producer Aaron May proved that he’s one of the most exciting rapper to come out of Houston with ‘Ride’, his powerful debut single from last year. On his latest offering ‘Let Go’, May lays down his clever wordplay over a jazz-inflected, self-produced beat that boasts a killer bass. With just these two singles, Aaron May has proved himself as a refreshing voice in an otherwise saturated landscape.
