Get ready for one of the most rewarding hip hop listens of 2009, HORRORSHOW’s ‘Inside Story’.
HORRORSHOW bring the energetic optimism and anxiousness of post-school pre-mortgage times to life, with vividly true poetics. The coming to terms with what will ultimately be lifelong memories: from overseas travel and the perspective it provides; to self-realisation and adulthood. The lyrical and musical sophistication defy their youthfulness – but they play it humble and earnest, stripping away any pretension.
Let’s not get too philosophical but ‘Inside Story’ is hip hop to its bones. However SOLO holds notes as comfortably as rhyme flows, and ADIT’s production is deep, with lush strings and evocative samples painting the picture. And yeah, they’re only 22!
