HUNTAR - "4AM" (POP, UK)
We first mentioned HUNTAR at the beginning of last year after the South-East Londoner dropped the swooning R'n'B hit "All That I Want" that channelled elements of Jamie XX meets James Blake. HUNTAR however, had a greater tenacity compared to his genre compatriots, and once again he astounds us with polished beats and gritty pop ensembles.
The solo artist who has recently supported The Hunna in Glasgow, is unashamedly sincere and candid in his approach to internal feelings and everyday life, all of which of course, is conveyed through his music. "4AM" is a furtive step towards punchy urban conventions whereby jagged beats and toughened digital movements lay down a pulsing rhythm; straying from the comfort zone of HUNTAR's previous excursions, this latest slab dabbles into a cauldron of effervescent synth currents and orchestrated soundboard details. In between all of the musical goings on the Londoner manages to inject a strain of progressive energy and gnarled ardour within his vocalities and therefore embellishes his lyrics with a profound degree of honesty. Something that is relatable and on point for the listener.
