WhoIsAubry and Ally Of The Moon team up for introspective new jam “Amor (The Quest)”
Monday at 4:01 pm
During my quarantine thus far, there haven’t been a lot of releases from local artists worth covering. I was expecting an influx of submissions would be keeping me busy throughout my time indoors, but that has not yet happened — until now. Back with a new drop is lyrical mastermind WhoIsAubry with a new single entitled “Amor (The Quest),” and this cut is the perfect example of how multi-faceted of an artist he is.
Produced by Aubry himself on his own iPhone, the instrumental comes in two parts. The first part of the song is a wavy trap beat filled with a ton of emotion. There’s a beat switch in the second half that brings in some eerie guitar melodies that are topped off with some turntable scratches and a chaotic drum break.
Aubry shows off his softer side on the first half of the cut, coming with some introspective lyricism and a sing-rapped delivery. His lines reek with nostalgia and a sense of longing.
Ally Of The Moon also drops in during the first half of the track, lending some ethereal sounding vocals in the background. It’s a beautiful addition to an already emotionally-charged soundscape.
Aubry’s vulnerable lyricism continues after the beat switch, coming with some lines that are poetic and incredibly hard-hitting. He switches over to more of a traditional hip-hop delivery, but his bars cut through every bit as much.
WhoIsAubry is one of Chicago’s most intriguing up-and-comers. He has a certain command over emceeing that not a lot of artists his age have, and it shows here once again. With a little help from a close confidant of his, “Amor (The Quest)” sees WhoIsAubry making the most of his time indoors.
