Power in the Horse is the standout single from New Wave Trap recording artist Babyape. On August 9th, 2018 the dropped his latest album ‘Vanity & Vices’, with a title like that, it leaves little room for the imagination to wonder which direction Babyape took his music in. Yet, Power in the Horse is refreshingly unpredictable as it weaves through the concordance of the melodic trap beat. The lyrics may not be notably inventive, yet there is something about the lyrical delivery to Power in the Horse that will allow the biting sentiment of the track to really sink is teeth in. Yet, after listening to Power in the Horse I can’t help feel the artist did themselves a slight misjustice by pandering to such an innocent tonality rather than creating a soundscape that demands respect and denotes maturity.
