ACCOUNT (EP) - CHIEF

ACCOUNT (EP) - CHIEF

In such a collaborative setting as the music scene demands, the essence of having a great deal of chemistry with another act these days is becoming more & more prevalent. 🎭 But, for a strikingly apparent & obvious reason no acts quite embody this status better than Chief do time after time. 🤝 And in the case of their newest project the same notion has rung true yet again, as they continue to balance each other out with performances that equally contribute to an outstanding 3 track EP. 💽 They do well to lead the project off with the EP title track “Account” (Ft. Demetria), who under a pounding synth-driven instrumental delivers an unforgettable vocal performance that does more than enough to cement her rising status in this light. 🎙✨ Moreover, how her delivery slowly but surely builds upon its own weight throughout the track – starting from its soft beginnings & eventually increasing in its intensity – is nothing short of phenomental. 🏆 With Chief then, following that up by doing what they do best providing some completely engaging & off-the-wall delivery that makes for just as smooth of a listen, as the beat does in its own right. 💯 However, the track that probably best depicts Chief’s undeniable chemistry is “Fufuka”, which is a track offers a gripping & direct instrumental that sees their expert balancing act between heavy low-end stylistics & chipper high-end ones on full display yet again, as the pounding bass works in perfect tandem with the blissfully plucked main riff. 🔊🔥 But still, no project is complete without some sort of of soft spoken ballad & their ability to always present a dynamic vocal presence comes clear & true on the slow paced track “Iwake” (Ft Mask), as all three of their soft yet direct inflections not only match perfectly with the song’s most relaxing portions, but also reach a resounding peak as the track does the same from an instrumental standpoint. 🥀 In short, “Account” is the most ideal example of how to take the standards set by others in a particular genre & fine-tune them through an unbreakable collaboration at it’s most raw & truest form. 🌟
