After impressing in 2013 with a pair of drugged-out, hard-hitting mixtapes in Indigoism and The Lords Of Flatbush, Brooklyn rap group The Underachievers are set to release their debut album, The Cellar Door: Terminus Ut Exordium, sometime this year. Today, the duo, comprised of Issa Dash and AK, have dropped the LP’s lead single “Incandescent”, which features Canadian producer Ryan Hemsworth providing the beat-heavy backdrop.
“Incandescent” sees the hip-hop collective improving on the dexterous spitting and wordplay that made their mixtapes so memorable. Hemworth’s darkly alluring productions snugly fit the group’s aggressive demeanor, with menacing synths and stutter-step drum machine snaps complementing The Underachievers’ psychedelic verses.
