The Come Up Boys - Happy New Year

DJBooth_logo2x
  • Artist: The Come Up Boys
  • Track: Happy New Year
  • Producer: Rich Kidd
  • Album: Year of the Come Up EP

Seeing as this is their first Booth feature, it's OK if you haven't heard of The Come Up Boys. What about this guy named Mac Miller, though? Ever heard of him? Well, it just so happens that the duo is signed to the indie sensation's newly-formed REMember Music label. Describing them in that context is helpful, but doesn't do them justice. On Happy New Year, they prove they can stand on their own two... or four, I guess. Atop Rich Kidd's clapping, strident beat, the pair spit a few party-ready, liquor-drenched bars. Don't let the soiree-centered lyrics fool you, though; their forceful, brash flows give the record a low-key, gritty vibe. Happy New Year is a standout track and B-side off The Come Up Boys' newly-released Year of the Come Up EP, released for free on Wednesday via Audiomack.
