HEЯITAGE - Fashion Slayer

Although "Fashion Slayer" begins with some very sparse acoustic guitar from the second that this duo starts to sing you recognize there is nothing remotely folky about this music. The group self-categorizes as soul, which is also the identification of another artist I could not help but compare Hannah Eggen to, that is soul singer Macy Gray. Like Macy the vocals here are not common but rather really authentic. Despite vocal similarities you can not deny that this unique duo also including Gianluca Gibbons is staying true to their own original styles and its obvious that they aren't trying to replicate or impersonate any other artist. "Fresh, and we're here to stay" is a lyric within "Fashion Slayer," and indeed that HEЯITAGE is and will continue to be if they consistently attempt honoring their message which really speaks to being yourself. Product endorsement kind of makes me cringe whenever I hear it in rap music but in this circumstance it comes across as both charming and clever, mostly due to the lyrics but also in part to the music video that is something of a fashion shoot. The product placement being so central to the song makes it catchy and I found "Fashion Slayer" worth repeated listening. If you want to hear HEЯITAGE yourself and live, save the date May 13th as HEЯITAGE joins the Hunnypot Live party on stage.

    TH' LEGENDARY SHACK SHACKERS - RAWHIDE! The memory of the great West spends its time roaming the lonesome road of sub-pop culture searching for its comeback. Though its rough and tumble days of wild lawlessness sometimes seem like a wholesome footnote in our history compared to the cyber anarchy of the 21st century, there are still… Read more

  • Zeus Rebel Waters - "LUV"
    Zeus Rebel Waters - "LUV" I have a soft spot in my heart for women on the pole, but an even softer spot for Zeus Rebel Waters. Tuning his usual rasp toward the traditional trap beat, the one word that can describe his 2020 single “Luv” love is, “classic”. The simplicity of the song’s intention… Read more
