Premiere: Rich Delinquent makes it two-for-two with Forget About Me
The latest single from the Melbourne-based musician follows on from the release of his debut, Death Drive, back in October.
With the release of his debut single Death Drive back in October, we were officially introduced to the Rich Delinquent project: A second coming from a long-time favourite of the Melbourne electronic scene, reinventing himself with an entirely new project and an entirely new sound to-boot - and oh boy, what a sound it was. Death Drive was a roaring four-minutes of trap-rap-pop that amalgamates the best of multiple genres into one mish-mash of influences and inspirations; charged and full of life, ready to pounce at any second.
Skip forward a few months to December, and Rich Delinquent isn't too keen on slowing down. Hot off the heels of Death Drive, we're today premiering the project's second single Forget About Me (ahead of its greater release this Friday, December 6th) and with it, allowing the world to once again acquaint themselves to an artist who might just be amongst 2020's Australian success stories.
It's another three-minutes-forty of focused and fierce electronica, with a sprawling production moving between quick-paced percussive riffs and hefty walls of synthesiser and bass, finding that perfect middle-ground between the trap-rap sounds that influenced his debut, and a spiralling take on dance music heavier on the synth that's sure to be further explored in the future. Rich's vocals are in there too, gripping with tension and catharticism as he battles demons with a pain-laden vocal charge, proving that he's a multi-disciplinary act in a space largely lacking of exactly that.
Together with Death Drive, these singles arm Rich Delinquent for a bright 2020 ahead - something he's definitely not going to be slowing down as he emerges one to watch in the next twelve months ahead. Dive into the track below:
