Kids – [Riley PnP]

Its been a minute since we’ve heard from Riley PnP, but he’s been back at it heavy as of late, and his latest release, “Kids” is arguably the cream of the crop. At the very least, it cements his presence.

What jumps out most about Riley to me is his grit. I love the way his gravely vocals always bring callous, sinister feel to the track (perfect for his lyrical content). On this effort, his approach is highlighted by the board work of his frequent collaborator, Offshore. The jazzy yet hazy backdrop accentuates that no-nonsense feel creating an effort that hits with no frills attached.
