Ahead of the full release – Lost – makes for a fine introduction to their sound, which is a combination of roaring guitar riffs and psychedelic meanderings, allowing the song, which only lasts for under three and a half minutes, to fill the room with exquisite layers of texturing that is rounded by a captivating vocal.
Hyphen is an English rapper who is currently working towards the release of the EP – Dance Songs To Die To.
With a selection of tracks around, a commonality of theme, is that wrapped inside the lyric lays a wry humour, sometimes self-deprecating, other times casting wary eye at the world around, encased in easy to engage compositions.
It is the lightness of touch that allows Hyphen to create songs that have far broader appeal than the to be expected home crowd, in fact, in many ways the style is likely to cause consternation with dedicated hip-hop supporters.
Music often doesn’t require a raging torrent to effectively remonstrate a perspective and in Lost – from the forthcoming EP – that is certainly the case.
