Name one thing better than Brockhampton, I dare you!
We asked and the boys delivered their fifth studio album GINGER. It’s an album filled with the highs and the lows that we experience in life on a day to day basis. While it may live up to the bar of their previous albums for some, we can agree that once again this is another project which perfectly encapsulates the artistry and lyricism of the group.
‘No Halo’, and ‘Sugar’ have to be part of my top favourites from the album, featuring Ryan Beatty who is no stranger to collaborating with the group. The songs explore our imperfections as human being’s, failed relationships, addiction and struggles that we experience through life. To convert harsh realities into soft rifts and smooth verses is a gift, it creates a safe space to inhale the good and exhale the bad energy that we bury inside ourselves. Further, collaborators include English rapper slowthai who appears on ‘Heaven belongs to you’. An extension of ‘If you pray right’, he raps about his mental health and relation with religion.
I’m not technical with my album reviews, I’m simply a lover of music who wants to share that love with the world. Please do give BROCKHAMPTON’s beautiful new new album GINGER a listen, and make sure you support!
