A chill-hop sounding production with philosophical questioning lyrics that are performed by two vocalist one an assertive hip-hop style that is Brooklyn rapper Khary and the other an atmospheric ambient timbre that is Aaron Taos. Very chill track that is sure to be a hit with the college crowd given the laid back cool production style. It is a love child between every chill-hop production and Twenty One Pilots. I’m a big fan of Aaron Taos writing and production style and would definitely recommend going to his channels and checking out his works to date.
FROM THE ARTIST:
“Is It Anything?” is a reflection song about a career in music. It’s about the constant questioning “Am I good enough?,” “What am I trying to say?” “Do I even want it anyway?” With the current state of music with everything being produced and released at such a rapid pace, I think it’s important to constantly step back and re-evaluate what it is that you reaaaaally actually want to say and why exactly you’re feeling disappointed, excited, or any number of highs and lows that come with this stuff. More generally, it’s about the process of going down the rabbit hole chasing a goal, whether it be a career, a person, or a feeling and when/if you finally attain that thing – is it all you thought it would be? My friend and talented Brooklyn artist Khary jumped on the third verse and really hit it home.
“Is It Anything?” will be my third single off my upcoming project, “Birthday Boy” which is a semi-concept album about growing older. It will be released in February 2019.
