All throughout this week, I’ve made the conscious decision to learn more about Connecticut’s budding music scene – and thankfully, so. Based on the quality of just a few artists that I’ve found so far, this scene inarguably has the potential to establish itself as a contender on the national stage this year, and at this point, I’m questioning myself as to why I wasn’t hip already. Regardless, Graduation Music is here today to help push CT artist K$UBI KAYY and his single “Iron Giant”.
Although this track is actually a few months old, I felt obligated to do everything in my power to help promote it. On “Iron Giant”, Kayy takes an unforgiving approach to lyricism, weaving through chilling production with vicious charisma and an infectious chip on his shoulder. Match this with trunk-rattling 808s and hypnotic production courtesy of fellow CT artist, GENSHINISGOD, and you have an absolute hit on your hands.
This is without a doubt one of the best songs I’ve heard in recent weeks, and considering the extensive catalog of incredible music that K$UBI KAYY has already put together, I hold no hesitation in saying that he’s got next. But don’t take my word for it, listen to “Iron Giant” below and check out more from the Connecticut hitmaker on SoundCloud here!
