On a highly relatable track about meeting someone with so many stars in their eyes as they do silly things just for an ultimately worthless follow or like, Young Pascal is utterly brilliant on this latest single all about staying away from things that don’t actually matter with ‘City Lights‘ (feat. Kid Rey and Perry P).
Young Pascal is a youthfully promising Perth, Australia-based indie trap artist who raps about important topics, that are highly prevalent in society during these confusing modern times.
“City lights is all about getting lost in the sauce and losing yourself to chasing that temporary kick of happiness in life which happens to more and more people nowadays and an example is clout-chasing. People are so infatuated with their likes or follower count to feel like they are worthy, they’re getting blinded by the lights!” ~ Young Pascal
With a steady flow and smartly-penned lyrics about how easy it is to fall into the devilish trap that so many stumble easily into, this is a bass-bouncing warning that has your heart sore with sorrow that this actually happens. The flashing lights and addictive comparison social media can really suck you in so quickly, as this true story grabs you quickly like watching an engrossing movie.
‘City Lights‘ (feat. Kid Rey and Perry P) from the prodigious Australian rapper Young Pascal, is an outstanding effort from three top-notch artists who bring their best to the fore here. With raps of high quality and a background beat that has you nodding your head, this is up there with the best tracks in this genre from 2021.
Keeping your valuable soul away from the temptation filled potholes of heart destruction seems to be one of the most important missions of modern-day life.
