CoSigned rapper Pell had us “chirpin'” with the first single from his forthcoming girasoul EP. Now, though, clouds are gathering as the Los Angeles-via-New Orleans rapper has dropped a stormy new cut, “golden”, featuring an assist from Brooklyn-based singer VÉRITÉ.
According to a press release, the woozy, introspective track serves as “a reflection of the inner turmoil Pell’s perpetually encountered as an artist.” It’s a fitting exploration, as the girasoul EP aims to navigate themes of evolution and personal growth. For the EP, Pell taught himself how to read sheet music in addition to playing guitar and keyboard, and also sought to expand his skills as a producer. It seems to be working, as “golden” was co-produced by Pell and Billy Cigarette.
Check out the track below:
