Starzsky released his new track ‘Change Places’, a hip-hop hit that aims for a new-wave atmosphere.
‘Change Places’ starts with a strong soul-blended hip-hop component for which his voice is a stupendous match for, until Starzsky unexpectedly bursts into a heartfelt rage that still generates empathy even with the harshest words.
Moving back to quieter vocals in the second part, the whole mood becomes way more RnB with sax sounds softening his rap bars and the song’s overall feel. It’s not the usual “hip-hop thang” but a song that contains traces of alternative and even new-wave sounds if explored deeper.
‘Moody starr’ is written on his Soundcloud profile and I believe it’s really worth giving a whirl to his many moods.
Head over Soundcloud to listen to ‘Change Places.’
