PREMIERE: Order Sixty6 prove they’re ones to watch with ‘Neighbours’
Brisbane’s ORDER SIXTY6 are a name you should probably get acquainted with. On a hot streak of late which has seen the group receive a nomination for Best Hip-Hop Song at the Queensland Music Awards and perform on the night, as well as receiving major props from triple J Unearthed, this is a group busy carving out their own lane in the greater hip-hop scene, and their latest single ‘Neighbours’ is a perfect introduction.
With three vocalists and a producer, Order Sixty6‘s music sits somewhere between BROCKHAMPTON, Vince Staples and more locally, Nerve. Each vocalist has their own signature flow and style, as all three bounce off each other while producer melrose. holds it down on the beats. ‘Neighbours’, a middle finger to all the noise complaints the guys have received over the years, is a hard-hitting track full of braggadocio and bravado, perfectly encapsulating a group with dreams that go far beyond suburban Brisbane.
The visuals, filmed by local legends Que Collective, show Order Sixty6 running amok and -depending how you look at it- terrorising their neighbours or treating them to a free concert. From S.A.B delivering his verse on the street to Apollo climbing up on the roof or Professor Paul going straight from addressing a noise complaint to tearing up on the mic, the three go toe to toe over melrose.’s menacing production. Bonus point for also including fellow Brisbane artists including Hallie and K-MAY as cameos of angry neighbours too.
‘Neighbours’ is an exciting release from a group that I’ve had my eyes on since their electrifying performance at the Queensland Music Awards. I can’t wait to see what they do next, but until then, get stuck into ‘Neighbours’ below!
