Phive ft. Edie Wellman - Nothing To Say

Posted 4 years ago
Producer:
Benton Allen James
Album:
Party Phoul

Every artist (including, cough, yours truly), occasionally finds him or herself with Nothing to Say. The mark of true talent is being able to say nothing in such a dope fashion that no one notices you’re just going on and on and on and on to fill space without ever approaching anything even remotely resembling a point. OK, that was a little transparent—for a better example, I turn to Phive, a North Carolina trio whose music you may have heard on MTV’s Jersey Shore and The Pauly D Show. On their latest single, Booth newcomers Joe Crush, J. Timber and DJ 818 make blunted ennui sound positively infectious. Backed by Benton Allen James’ stop-start piano chords and leisurely percussion, Crush describes himself kicking back on the porch, enjoying a big, “brown blunt” without a care in the world—until a nagging phone call from his mom shakes him out of his reverie. Assisting on the guest tip, Edie Wellman ties the cut together with a fittingly breezy hook, and J. Timber laces the back with some smooth sung vocals of his own. A catchy cut tailor-made for a summertime smoking session, this is just one of many quality jams set for inclusion on the group’s Party Phoul LP, set to hit online retailers this May.
