Newcomer Yung Calamity’s new single, “Currency” isn’t just a song — it’s also an atmosphere. Starting off with a muted, grainy-sounding piano, the young artist’s melodic vocals are then introduced, calling to mind the falsettos of an early 2000s Justin Timberlake. At the chorus, the listener is hit with addictive trap hats which shape the song into a force to be reckoned with.
In the wake of his latest single, “Just Stay”, Yung Calamity didn’t want to get too comfortable with his sound. Always looking to switch up the game, “Currency” sees him embark on a new sonic journey – and we’re glad he took that risk. This new track deals with an all too common story these days – an unbridled yearning for money. Epitomising this dangerous game of desire, the track’s production reflects this haunting reality, and his skilled lyricism does an apt job of putting it into words. About the track, Yung Calamity reflects, “I wanted to create something different to my other music, something striking and provocative and I think ‘Currency’ is that.”
Frequenting the iconic recording studio, HOXA HQ, Yung Calamity has been able to build the foundations for a solid and refined sound. And, if this new track is anything to go by – the only way is up for this rising talent. You’d better watch this space.
