ALL TAKEN FROM FORTHCOMING EP ‘POST DEATH (OUTTAKES) COMING SOON
guccihighwaters, Irish born but now residing in Long Beach, NY is the latest 21 year old low-fi rapper to cause a huge stir online.
Since starting up a year ago, his tracks have reached multi-million plays, along with nearly 600,000 monthly Spotify listeners. An eager and vibrant fan community adding to his brief, but prolific beginning with homemade YouTube videos, guccihighwaters’ buzz seemed to suddenly arrive and instantly connect. His tracks start with a simple idea — a guitar phrase, a piano chord – and the lyrics serve as the scaffolding, holding up what he’s built. A hazy confidence permeates his ebb and flow, injecting his production choices with tenacious storytelling.
Inspired by hip-hop grooves and SoundCloud rap’s divergence from traditional structure, guccihighwaters strikes a hard division between his two influences, delivering tracks that are at once bold and intimately familiar.
