Count Fast Island – [Highway]

Seattle artist Highway is certainly no stranger to our pages at this point. With a well-developed sense of artistry and a fairly consistent release schedule over the past few months, he’s building out a lane entirely of his own design, and isn’t showing signs of slowing down anytime soon. Today, Highway hits our pages yet again with a brand new song and video entitled “Count Fast Island.”

First premiered on OVO Sound Radio last week courtesy of G0HomeRoger, “Count Fast Island” is true to its name, bringing listeners to an island where evocative production, money-minded lyrics, and melodic, malleable deliveries are all that decorate the surroundings. The song itself builds on a plush sonic base, while Highway’s lyrics shift between reflective, focused, and clever with seamless precision. By the sounds of it, Seattle’s own is becoming and more comfortable in his deliveries, and with such a unique voice and creative vision to match, releases like “Count Fast Island” place the rising talent in a fast lane toward success. Add all of this to a colorfully simplistic set of visuals, and the world of Highway reveals itself in a deeply infectious way.

“Count Fast Island” is yet another impressive step on the road to stardom for Highway, so don’t sleep. Give this one a listen below and truly take the time to pay attention to each lyric. Highway is telling his story in a wildly compelling and unique way, and I couldn’t be more excited to hear what’s next.
