Ghostpoet - "Cold Win"

New Musicalex nicollComment

This new track by Ghospoet is off of his album "Some Say I So I Say Light" on Play It Again Sam. Over a muted and mottled mechanical beat, Ghostpoet sing-raps like King Krule about a dislike of a workaday lifestyle. This track feels very urban and futuristic, but not in any streamlined utopian way. Instead, the song seeks to express the dystopian threads within our own society that we don't notice because of familiarity. I imagine Ghostpoet underneath a streetlight, dressed in all black, turning away from whatever job he once held towards something else, "before the sun goes down on (his) heart".
