Yung Lean And Company Continue Building The Hype

    Yung Lean has dished out yet another hot single in preparation of his upcoming album Stranger, this time in "Skimask".

    Instrumentally, "Skimask" is low-key and unobtrusive, but a banger with quality where it counts. Producer Yung Gud is unsurprisingly right in his element again, mixing and matching club-shuddering basslines and alternating booming kicks and stabbing snares in a track that is both glitchy and jungle-infused. A near constant synth arpeggio is metronomic, keeping rhythm and pace for the song and dictating Lean's verses in a hypnotizing fashion.

    In traditional fashion, the entire endeavor is undercut with the sadboy vibes Yung Lean and crew popularized. Under the gild of aggressive and bouncing beats is Lean's near-monotonous and hypnotic verse, contrasting the instrumental attitude with introspective lyricism that feels more like Lean's diary than a rap verse. Like much of the crew's portfolio, "Skimask" is simultaneously ambitious and inconspicuous. It's also a refreshing return to form after the lukewarm reception that most of his tracks on 2016's Warlord received.

    Stranger is out November 17 on Year0001 Records.
