Regardless of my destructive response to pre-release Koong, I’ve been enjoying Xikers’ new album very often. Title monitor Do Or Die is improbable, and songs like Run and Sunny Aspect are surprisingly groovy. Homeboy‘s hazy, downbeat sound is a stunning alternative for follow-up single, however the track has grown on me with time.
Homeboy‘s verses make the most of acquainted vocal results so-loved by KQ Leisure, however I feel the monitor would truly profit from a extra simple strategy. When the blokes are singing with out these results throughout the bridge, it’s clear they’ve pretty tones which are greater than able to driving the track on their very own. Their mix throughout the refrain can also be pleasurable, making me surprise how a extra stripped-down model of Homeboy might sound.
One factor’s for positive: Xikers add their very own persona to something they report. I could not love each second of Homeboy, however it presents its personal perspective that feels instantly tied to the group themselves.
