Over the past few years, South London based Loyle Carner has paved a path and cemented his status as one of the best rappers to come out of the London and the UK. What makes Carner’s music stand out from his contemporaries is his honest and personable narratives. It’s an underlying thread that binds his songs together on debut album ‘Yesterday’s Gone’, and is forever present on his recently released sophomore effort ‘Not Waving, But Drowning’. Addressing mental health, ADHD, grief, love and everything else in between, the record features contributions from the likes of COLORS alumni Tom Misch, Jordan Rakei and Jorja Smith.
For his A COLORS SHOW, Loyle Carner serves up a cool and calculated performance of ‘Ice Water’, which is taken from his ‘Not Waving, But Drowning’ album. Soundtracked by a super slick, classic hip-hop beat that’s accompanied by a radiant sample, Carner works his way through the song with an equally chilled delivery. Dive into the refreshing rendition of ‘Ice Water’ up top, and be sure to give Loyle Carner’s new album ‘Not Waving, But Drowning’ too.
