Last week, NOM introduced us to his mellow, out-the-box style via The Christening, a Booth-exclusive single which won an impressive 4.0-star rating on our pages. Lo and Behold, the Iowa native has returned to do it all over again with the follow-up—another world premiere. While Jharee replaces Weirdough behind the boards, his sampled production has a similarly drowsy, headphone-ready feel. Over the mesmerizing beat, NOM trades intricate, insightful verses with newcomer Caliiko. Singer Jade, another first-time featuree, contributes some soothing background vocals to the record’s hook. Feeling it? This is just one of many low-key bangers to be found on DJBooth-hosted mixtape Lucid, scheduled for free digital release September 16.
