The UK trap wave sound has exploded over the last few years. Pioneered by the likes of D Block Europe and Nafe Smallz, a new class of underground talent is now bubbling away.
Combining tales about the trials and tribulations of life with celebrations of success, it’s an intrinsically vulnerable genre that arguably offers a rounded view on life.
Rackz LC has been one of the most prominent newcomers in this world. Combining pain-ridden, syrupy vocals with mesmerising instrumentals, his music never fails to hit emotionally. “Zombie” is his latest release and it’s more of all the things we love about his music.
The video offers a typically nuanced reflection on his life. Posted both on his block and in a glamorous restaurant, we get the sense Rackz LC is stuck in a liminal state of mind.
