Social Club Misfits - "Is That Okay"
Capitol CMG Label Group's Social Club Misfits return with their first single off their upcoming project titled, Feared By Hell. Marty provides some depth with the harmonies and singing talents to start the single off. The track focuses on the question if being yourself is okay regardless of expectations. Regardless of fame, Marty and FERN shift their focus on God and their faith and that's quite okay. The track ends with some popping horns as the entire vibe forces your body to move. Is this is any reflection on what their next studio release will mimic, fans are in for a satisfying treat.
nobigdyl. x Andy Mineo - "WILLY" Reach Records' Andy Mineo and indie tribe.'s nobigdyl. team up for a classic to end the summer. Both contribute some of their strongest bars and rhyme schemes to date. The accompanying visuals are brilliantly directed by Garret Maddox. Each equipped with a mouthful of wordplay genius between metaphors, similes, and straight fire from their creative minds. The entire vibe of the track makes me wish it was out back in June so I could've blasted it all summer long, windows down and head noddin' vigorously.
Twenty Four Seven EP by Zauntee Zealots haven't heard from Zauntee since before the pandemic back in February with the releases of "Go Off" and "In the Moment." With this latest EP, Zauntee compiled his singles from the last year and added one new track titled, "Shine, Shine, Shine." The new track has a vibe similar to Tobymac's "City On Our Knees." Worship-feel in nature, it stands out as my favorite from the EP. The rest of the tracks bring the typical high level of energy fans expect from Zauntee. "Fanatic" is a great addition to your workout playlist.
