Excelle McFly and King Art serve up their best offering yet on “Ice Cold”
Friday at 6:54 pm
When Excelle McFly and King Art appear on City of Wind, it usually happens when they are working together. These two have a degree of musical synchronicity that few can match and they constantly bring out the best in each other. On their new single, “Ice Cold,” that trend continues.
King Art’s production is ferocious and teeming with urgency. The piano loop creates an uneasy vibe and the trap instrumentation kicks the pace into overdrive. This is definitely one of King Art’s meaner instrumentals.
If the production wasn’t frenetic enough, Excelle McFly brings a whole new level of tenacity. With a staccato flow that strikes like lightning, McFly addresses gun violence and the harsh realities he faced growing up in the inner-city with stunning focus. The passion exuded in his voice is every bit as urgent as the issues he covers. His wordplay has gotten sharper as well.
Excelle McFly and King Art have dropped their fair share of gems in the past. However, with “Ice Cold,” they have reached a whole new level. With King Art sounding harder than ever behind the boards and and Excelle McFly stepping up his pen game in a major way, “Ice Cold” sees these dudes not only continuing to bring out the best in each other, but bring out the best of themselves as well.
“Ice Cold” is now available on Soundcloud. Stream it here:https://soundcloud.com/excelle-mcfly/ice-cold/s-Y00i2
