THe LYONZ Share Infectious New Cosmic Hip Hop EP

By Vee D

Canadian Duo, THe LYONZ have released the next in their series of new two-track Eps Push That Way / Animosity.

Push That Way is a shimmering boom-bap banger about how your obsessions can consume you. With a catchy refrain, it transports the listener to neon-lit nightscapes, darkly lit vintage coffee shops, and jazz bars. Hushed scratchy raps whisper in the ear above a dreamy groove that becomes more and more intoxicating as the track becomes more and more addictive.

Animosity joins Push That Way with a harder more experimental sound, breaking for a superb washed-out saxophone interlude flecked with summer memories. There’s a glow surrounding the track and a restrained heart-pumping beat that touches on the spiritually embossed moods of Sun Ra Orchestra. On the track, THe LYONZ explain; “Animosity is a burning flower trying to be extinguished, but the hopeful breaths make the fire spread.”
