Yhung Pistol’s “Real Me” is a melodic meeting of rap and hip hop. The lyrics provide a detailed account of the experiences that led to the concept and storytelling. There’s a lot of lyricism, and the song has long stretches in hip hop, but this echoed melody used to convey it adds some alternative edge to the track.
The backing track again showcases a structurally thoughtful piece of music that combines the thickness of a soft hip-hop beat with the electric energy of a wave of synth-driven riffs. The opening few bars of music, and indeed the last few moments, reiterate the masterful use of structure within the production. However, the lead artist’s vocal performance in the mix is the primary driving force behind the song.
“Yhung Pistol” is a talented and exciting artist. This unique energy and musicality speak volumes for his artistry and are expected to evolve into a more extended project or several more releases to embrace audiences. The background is beautiful, the melody is gorgeous, and the melody and lyrics are expressive, reflective and unusual – all of which make for a powerful listening experience.
Musically the track is incredible, starting with the simplicity of a riff, an energetic beat and a smooth and fantastic lead vocal performance. As far as the lead vocals go, the sound is undeniably pure and real – the song comes from a place of experience and consideration and you can tell this.
There is certainly a further sense of character and individuality to the performance. Elsewhere in Yhung Pistol’s releases, this same thread of individuality continues to show – “Real Me” being a strong example. The insane fusion of these vocal parts is what you’d expect from the musician and songwriter. The lyrics follow a definite path that proves to be an enduring feature of his work. this is worth a listen – make it loud.
