Get ready to reminisce on the good old days of ‘real rap’ with Floridian hip-hop quartet Phantom Phunk and their latest single, ‘Wound Up’ featuring Pandapaws and vocals from the talented C.I.D. The new release follows on from their previous singles ‘Zone‘ and ‘A Week Ago‘ which have collectively amassed well over 300,000 streams on Spotify alone. Judging by the energy and lyricism in ‘Wound Up’, it’s sure to follow in the same direction.
A genre-bending masterpiece, ‘Wound Up’ incorporates elements of classic hip-hop and trap with subtle jazzy licks and funk-fuelled influences to create a unique sonic atmosphere that catches the ear and captures the mind. Bouncy, upbeat and rhythmically contagious, the combination of Phantom Phunk’s intricate bars and dynamic flows alongside C.I.D’s vocal performance, ‘Wound Up’ manages to strike a delicate balance between playful and profound. Plucked guitar strings meet ambient synths and witty rhyme schemes resulting in a distinctive East Coast flavour that’s vaguely reminiscent of proEra and The Underachievers.
