New wave indie trapper, Swavo has dropped his Young Thug-inspired rap track, Blessings, which operates on the celestial side of sweet and the evocative side of confessional. Around the signature timbre of the 808s are stunningly intimate indie guitars, and there is just enough bass to bring robustness to the melodies that you’ll want to lose yourself in time after time.
Vocally, Swavo proves that you don’t need to channel aggression to deliver conviction in your rap bars. You can always flow with the same fiery sense of impassioned wit that was present in Blessings. It is only a matter of time before Swavo gets the recognition he irrefutably deserves.
Blessings is now available to stream on YouTube.
