As more rap artists become bolder and increasingly more honest in their lyrics, Maine, US-hailing alt-hip hop artist, TREELOCK, switched the narrative by serving a reminder of the dangers of candour with his latest single, Hide Your Feelings.
Any fans of Blue October will instantly find themselves drawn in by the melancholic indie instrumentals and raw vocals. As the single progresses, discordance starts to amass in the production until the track reaches its evocative peak and TREELOCK breaks into guttural alt-rock screams and lyrically, you couldn’t ask for more urban poetry with cutting lines such as “I feel like I don’t feel”.
Hide Your Feelings is now available to stream on YouTube.
