We have so much fun cobbling together our weekly UMC20 Spotify playlist from submissions received via email and social media, tunes we’ve recently reviewed, and artists who simply stick out in our hearts and minds.
At Lehigh Valley Underground, we believe that sharing is caring. So, let’s try something new around here: let’s round up some new releases from local artists you may or may not have heard.
Single: Filter Face
Release Date: Sept. 20, 2016
Genre: Funk/Hip Hop
Combine a funky bass line, verse vocals that seamlessly combine jazz rhythms and quick hip hop flow, and a Red Hot Chili Peppers-inspired chorus, and you have Wetbrain’s latest single, “Filter Face.”
The Philly outfit’s newest effort plays a bit more to the funk-loving crowd than its predecessor, “She Bad,” but still has plenty of hip hop sensibilities to keep fans of that genre happy. It begins with some lo-fi percussion before its full rhythmic groove sets in to get listeners dancing for the next 3+ minutes.
Lyrically, “Filter Face” talks about the menace and shadiness of rebellious youth, although certain clues throughout the song hint – namely, those of shame and pain – suggest that living the wild life is not always what it’s cracked up to be.
Check out the single when it drops – as well as Wetbrain’s other tunes – by visiting them on Spotify.
