Hip Hop doesn’t come much more melodically ambient than the latest single “Ain’t Nobody” from Names Are Hard Collective.
The instrumental hooks may be soft, but they’re ensnaring all the same. The up and coming collective set up the perfect transcendental tone which makes it all too easy to drink in the upraising conscious lyrics which have the efficacious power to send you into a state of positive meditative reflection.
By throwing nuances of ambient jazz, Indie, and downtempo electronica into the gently mind-altering mix, Names Are Hard Collective were able to construct a fresh new sound. But the essence of the track lies in its ability to act as an aural guide to mindful catharsis. Tracks such as Ain’t Nobody are essential on the airwaves right now. For the sake of your own sanity, get Names Are Hard Collective on your radar.
