If you haven’t checked out Birmingham, UK Hip Hop duo Authentic Bros’ standout track “Traveller” yet, you’ve missed out on some of the freshest Rap to drop this year.
Their explosively sublime mix of big-beat, Grime, RnB, and Dance comes together as a hyped smorgasbord of complementary elements. Yet, it’s so much more than your average genre-mash with the infusion of Eastern rhythms which refreshingly mix up the monotony commonly found on the airwaves.
I would compare Authentic Bros to other artists, but no artist on our radar has ever dropped an earworm quite like Traveller before. It’s layered, it’s soulful, it’s pioneering, and most of all, it’s perceptible that the artist put accessibility in the heart of the mix. The melodies may be distinctive, but that doesn’t prevent them from taking hold as they create the perfect platform for the Rap bars which run like spoken word poetry.
