Urban Indie newcomer CAIN has recently released their debut self-titled EP providing 5 exceptionally raw singles which combine elements of Hip Hop, Electro Pop, and Indie.
The best introduction to his sound is the standout single “Trust Issues”, I mean, we all have them, don’t we? It’s either that or naivety. There may not be all too many artists who are willing to admit it quite so candidly, but that’s just part of the New York solo artist’s quintessential charm.
Even though the lyricism and CAIN’s vocal style simply oozes melancholy, the Hip Hop beat infuses plenty of energy into the single – especially when you get to the chorus where Trust Issues evolves into an EDM Pop soundscape before bringing the tempo right back down. In short, Trust Issues is an emotive rollercoaster of a hit which stands as a testament to CAIN’s futuristic talents and dedication to creating music which does plenty more than just skirt around issues of superficiality.
