Starting of with an acoustic guitar searching and quickly joined by a dark and brooding synth and angst driven vocal performance. “Monster (Under My Bed)” by Call Me Karizma is full of chilling and dark songwriting that will keep listeners on the edge of their wits. The album artwork is simple like a child drew it and it is fitting with the lyrics that describe a monster who lives under the bed. This track is reminiscent of acts like Twenty One Pilots but with a creepier undertone that would fit well in a horror movie trailer. Check out the streaming below and learn more about the artist.
FROM THE ARTIST:
Call Me Karizma unveils “Monster” – the latest single off of his forthcoming EP out this Spring called The Gloomy Tapes Vol. 2. The debut single off the project “Serotonin” broke the Top 20 on Spotify’s New Music Friday playlist, Apple Music’s Best of the Week, Top 5 on Spotify Playlist’s The Scene and New Noise, and was #1 Breaking Pop on Apple Music. He has received praise from Billboard, Earmilk, tmrw Magazine, Alternative Press and more.
With his razor-sharp wordplay and pure melodic instructs, Minneapolis-bred artist Call Me Karizma transforms his pain into music that’s confrontational but reassuring, catchy but cathartic. Through the years, that dynamic has drawn an exceptionally devoted following, one that’s come to rely on his uncompromising honesty.
The Gloomy Tapes is a three part series and backs ‘Riz’s’ visceral lyricism with a more expansive post-pop sound. While he created most of the series on his own in his basement studio, Riz also collaborated with Robbie Soukiasyan (XXXTentacion) and David Pramik (X Ambassadors, LANY). Sonically rooted in both hip-hop and punk, The Gloomy Tapes bears a powerful vitality that makes each lyric all the more impactful.
The second installment of The Gloomy Tapes is slated for March 2019 release surrounding a U.S. headlining tour.
