Fresh Song Friday with Ugly Boy Fresh!
Everybody loves the weekend. There’s usually one song that I want to put on repeat, roll the windows down (I ain’t got a drop top… yet) and let the world hear this ill music infiltrating my speakers. I pick all sorts of artists it doesn’t matter if they’re mainstream or underground. The song can be eight minutes old or eight years old if I like it, I’m posting it!
This week’s pick:
Artist: SomeKindaWonderful, Song: “Reverse”
Cleveland is definitely in tha house!!! So, there’s this ill group with this song that’s been blowin’ up. The group is called SomeKindaWonderful — or SKW — and their song is called “Reverse”. It’s a record about infidelity, but it’s so sticky and catchy. Reverse been out for a while now but it’s just one of those records that will be great 20 years from now. SKW captures the one thing lots of artists miss out on, that’s using a song to bring you in their world.
What I find so intriguing about this song is that I found myself wondering how it would go down if I put myself in the singer’s shoes. Would I lack the remorse and “do it again”? I’m not so sure. It’s just one of those records, man. Not to mention the story is told in reverse and that makes it even more insanely good. The vocalist kills this song with a rich, soulful sound that transcends genres. Their debut album drops June 24, 2014 and if the whole LP is anything like Reverse, this group is going to be one of the world’s most famous!
Check out SomeKindaWonderful and pre-order their album on iTunes.
Side mention: Their joint “Police” is ill too. That’s why I know they’ll be good. So I’ve added in a remix I found on Soundcloud!
