January’s list of rising talent to discover includes Shumaq, who offers a musical reset.
Earlier this month he surprise-released “Meanwhile,” the single off his debut album. The versatile musician exceeds our expectations with this drop, which gets stuck and continues to play in your head long after you skip to another track. This sticky tune is an elevation of Shumaq’s unique style, a mix between indie and alternative hip-hop.
“Meanwhile” once again proves that the best thing about music is the ability to transport you. Who can say that songs under 2 minutes don’t work after this?
