drinkbleachh has a discography rife with melancholy, but even by the Canadian rapper/singer’s standards his newest drop ‘Losing Sight’ feels extremely cold, distant and emotionally disconnected. The song’s slurred murmurs remain smooth and gentle and, despite the hard to decipher lyrics, cascade gracefully over acoustic strums and electric wails. A brief rap/spoken word segment acts as the eye of the song’s hurricane, the instruments around it momentarily fading to focus on the frustrated, cynical monologue. Few of drinkbleachh’s past efforts have been this downtempo, and even fewer have been so expertly chiseled down to only the most essential, emotive layers. If you’re a fan of rap music that borrows tastefully from other genres, then ‘Losing Sight’, and the artist’s work in general, is absolutely for you.
