Goddamn kilogram, this is my favourite song right now by a Prairie mile. Winnipeg crew The Lytics crush it with Stay Calm, the first single from their upcoming long-player They Told Me. Propulsive drums, a super-catchy vocal and then 3 fun & well-executed verses - yes, yes and yes. Throw in a great Stuey Kubrick-helmed video that features the band actually having fun (gasp! Where are their rap frowns?!?!) whilst out and about in Winnipeg, and there isn’t one thing I don’t enjoy about this.
So watch the video & put the song on repeat. Play it for your friends & spread the word about some honest-to-goodness feelgood hip hop. Then check for They Told Me when it drops next month.
