Kid Prexy’s latest release “Raindrops” is all at once interesting, stylish, smooth and rhythmic to the point that the music becomes this blissfully melodic, even hypnotic, necessary part of your life for the short time that it plays out.
Kid Prexy is a well-talented young musician who is from Edmond, Oklahoma. Prexy has been playing guitar, drums, and singing in the School of Rock band since he was 8 years old and performed many live concerts in different music genres such as alternative, pop, rock, punk, grunge & blues. He started writing his own original music in the Summer of 2020. He recorded his first EP: Broken Promises at 13 years old and started recording songs for his next EP: Lights in the Forest in December 2021 at 14 years old as well. Having true faith in music this amazing soul has started his music journey and has proven he is talented at the same time as well.
Musically the song has the warm and easy-going energy of a well-produced, radio-ready hip hop song. The whole thing showcases a strong awareness of structure and some playful creative work that allows the leading melody to hit with an even greater impact. There’s a classic or even vintage sound to the music and the mix on occasion. The subject matter is that of the complexity of relationships, holding the potential for sadness or struggle, but it’s dealt with in an open, accessible, even welcoming way, so the overall vibe given off by the music is the main source of its influence when listened to. It comes with a continued sense of optimism and positivity.
The artist’s voice has a certain freshness and character to it, a realness, as well as a genuine level of the effortless soul; all in all very subtlety offering up something new. Much more than this though, the song is so well written. The evolving melody, the poetry, the varied sections – it soon becomes familiar and intensely satisfying as far as musical escapism goes. The apparent vagueness or the less blatantly obvious subject matter of the song (when compared to the somewhat deafeningly obvious nature of much of mainstream hip hop) is something that speaks volumes for the artistry of the release.
