Famed Indonesian rapper Rich Brian today shares his brand new 7 track EP titled ‘1999’, the first major release since his widely acclaimed album The Sailor from last summer. The EP campaign kicked off with the release of ‘Love In My Pocket’ and ‘Don’t Care’ and now reveals 5 more brand new songs along with a new music video for the lead single.
The album comes with a selection of songs for everyone, there’s a variety of sounds explored across the EP which show off a diverse palette. From low chilled moments on “When You Come Home” and opener “Sometimes” through to more catchy upbeat feels on track such as ‘Doa’ and ‘Sins’ – which ends with a recording of a voice note one of Brian’s close friends sent him crying in admiration of his success.
Speaking in an interview Brian reveals, “One of my favourites is “DOA”, which is basically Dead On Arrival for short. It sounds morbid but it’s about competing with someone who has zero chance against you in the first place. The melodies really remind me of Gorillaz, who I love. It’s a song that I always play whenever I wanna feel better about my singing, and myself in general.”
