This is an advanced listening of their second single of the year, “last week” written by wallah umoja & produced by shruggs dropping on Nov.15th, 2017
Wallah channels his aggression in a relentless flurry of bars that develop a portrait of a man’s psyche when amputating life’s dead weight. Shruggs provides the seasick backdrop to this mindset with rising and falling instrumentation. Together they manage to take you on a roller-coaster, dropping in & out of anxiety and a zen level of assurance.
