ELUCID x Psychic Twin - "NY Blanks" (prod. Willie Green)
ELUCID preps listeners for his forthcoming full-length Save Yourself LP with the lead single "NY Blanks" featuring Psychic Twin. The track produced by Willie Green arrives ahead of the project, which is due to drop on April 15th. The latest since the otherworldly single "OSAGE," this track - like the album - is yet another dank, futuristic journey into ELUCID's psyche that boasts an industrial feel and finds him spitting with an urgency that suggests the world might be coming to an end. Though it is also plausible that he could be searching for a light at the end of the tunnel...or maybe just himself.
“Save yourself is my most immediate and personal record to date. It's difficult to articulate but handling the bulk of production may have had something to do with that. I didn't really know what I was making. When the spirit moved, the raps poured out. I was talking about myself. My community. About where I came from and future possibilities,” ELUCID says. “At its core, Save Yourself is about rebirth—of both self and community. An examination. An assessment. A shedding. I was working through personal issues that spilled over into the music. Events regarding police brutality and shootings of unarmed black folk dominated news headlines in a way that I've never seen in my lifetime. Liberation was on my mind. I reaffirmed myself in the idea that I couldn't truly be free until we were all free.”
