ODE TO NAIROBI - ANDURO

ODE TO NAIROBI - ANDURO

Whenever we get sent new music, I always try to look for flashes of potential, things young artists can do well, and what they can build on to improve for the future and Anduro comes out with a new release that while still raw, has it’s moments in the sun. ☀️ On “Ode To Nairobi” he strides over a blissfully mellow and characteristically appealing yet paced instrumental with crisp drums, utilizing some rather entertaining wordplay to deliver a rather entrancing hook that is as nostalgic as the track title would suggest. 🌇 The refreshingly mellow production meshes well with Anduro’s chilled yet slick flow, intricately delivering one conscious element after another. 🎙✨ I confess I wish there was an extra verse or more in the track, as it feels the track would be more suited as an album or mixtape interlude by itself, but he did so well to create a meaningful ground for the track to stand on and after listening to some of his most recent tracks such as “Haki Yetu”, which contained some stellar lyricism, i believe he’s improving as an artist track by track, showing signs of untapped potential that he’s slowly but surely beginning to unlock and put together. 🔏
