Stress is an insidious thing—if you’ve ever found yourself worrying about developing an ulcer from worrying too much, you know exactly what I’m talking about here—and for those not lucky enough to be born easygoing, “chilling out” is a skill that can take decades to master. On the newly-released lead single off his forthcoming From Here to Eternity LP, sharp-dressed emcee Outasight reveals that, underneath his cool exterior lies an individual as anxiety-prone as the next guy—now, however, it’s a Brand New Day and he’s determined take things in stride without fretting over others’ expectations. Though changing one’s outlook on life is never an easy task, the NYC up-and-comer’s newfound confidence certainly comes through musically—switching between rapped and sung vocals over fellow Booth favorite 6th Sense‘s jazzy-yet-street mix of organ, sunny synths, and live percussion, Outasight showcases a vibrant sound almost too ear-pleasing to stay on the underground. If this track’s combo of hummable melody and lyrical introspection leaves you hungry for more, keep it locked to the Booth for release details on the emcee’s second LP, as well as all the latest tunes.
