We introduced readers to #Pound back in November, with their single, ‘B@ng!’. The duo, comprising SMXKE and MC DARKBOI, are from East London, are now back and set to release their first ever studio project, ‘Free Tayp’.
We’ve listened to two tracks from ‘Free Tayp’ so far, and believe that #Pound are onto a winner with this. The very R&B ‘Hol Tyte’ is the perfect showcase for their vocal and musical talents – the repeated refrain of “pack up your troubles in your old grey bag” is beautiful, and when augmented by rhyming it comes together as brilliantly.
Second track, ‘Feels’, is a slightly different style, a more raw and sombre piece, but nonetheless a good demonstration of what #Pound are capable of. Still the R&B sound at the root of it, there’s more focus on the rhyme, coupled with some deep intonation.
We’re looking forward to seeing what the rest of their project sounds like!
