Esteemed Melbourne Emcee HVNCOQ has dropped a new single and video clip to match, ‘out of my mind’.
Although having released a limited amount of music under his solo moniker, HVNCOQ is an artist with a big reputation in Melbourne's scene. You might have caught his work with live outfit ESESE, who recently released two new singles 'Home' and 'Slow Down' via Valve Sounds. Or, perhaps you've caught some of his wild DJ sets as a part of the infamous Prophecy Boys, or even attended his co-run trap club night 'Sauce', who recently brought Atlanta legend, Reece Laflare, to Melbourne. Now, the esteemed Melbourne emcee has dropped a new single and video clip, ‘Out Of My Mind’.
Fresh, almost tropical beats are complemented by HVNCOQ's distinctive flow and tight lyricism. Both the film clip and the track's contrast of bright colours and soundscapes against a melancholic subject matter brings to mind the bittersweet feeling of heading home alone from kick-ons after a long night out.
This will be HVNCOQ's first single released since signing to his new label, WVS. It's no secret WVS has been signing some of the most promising hip hop talent in Australia. The roster hosts Erik Sanders, Travy P and Lil Spacely- just to name a few. With the industry watching and acting on the new wave of hip hop bursting out of Australia, it's no doubt an exciting time to be in Australian hip hop.
