After a six month stint between releases, Trap artist George Flyer is ready to drop their most immersive track yet. “Paranoia” perfectly captures the anxiety seems to be becoming increasingly more prevalent in our society as we all struggle to find meaning in an order-less world.
The track follows the narrative of a man directionless and only informed by their problems while trying to live in spite of their pain. Plenty of us would be lying if we said that’s an emotion which we’ve never experienced. George Flyer’s vocals are impossibly easy to listen to, there’s a vulnerability to their verses instead of abrasive aggression which makes it all too easy to make a connection to their lyrics.
If anyone can restore the reputation of Trap as an aggressive genre, it’s George Flyer. The Alt Trap track weaves in endearingly melodic elements of Folk to give Paranoia a playful friendly tonality which has plenty in common with the orchestral electronic folk created by Cosmo Sheldrake.
You’ll have to wait a little longer before you can check out Paranoia for yourselves. In the meantime, head on over to SoundCloud to listen to their earlier releases.
