Listen to two new singles from BROCKHAMPTON ahead of Aus tour
The "best boyband since One Direction" will be in Australia for Listen Out and a pair of debut headline shows this September.
After their incredible SATURATION trilogy made the group a dominant hip-hop force in 2017, Californian outfit BROCKHAMPTON are steaming ahead with incredible singles at a weekly pace. With their upcoming album The Best Years Of Our Lives out "soon", the group have continued their hip-hop assault over the last month, launching a new radio show on Beats 1 that, with weekly episodes, has been used to debut new material from their long-awaited return. The insanely catchy, Outkast-esque single 1999 WILDFIRE kicked it all off, and after following it up with 1998 TRUMAN two weeks back, the group have again stolen the limelight with a short yet sweet, two-minute burst of energy titled 1997 DIANA. 1997 DIANA proves that sometimes, songs can be too short. Coming in at a touch over two minutes in length, 1997 DIANA is BROCKHAMPTON at their most upbeat and playful, with the group's members vocally swerving in and out above the single's energetic and quite bass-heavy beat that warps and twists among samples and stripped-back moments. However, just as you start getting pulled into their energy - something channelled into the single's high school gym-shot video clip - the group pull it away in a snap, leaving you wanting more.
In the same Beats 1 show, BROCKHAMPTON previewed another, currently unreleased single titled DON'T BE FAMOUS. "DON'T BE FAMOUS not finished yet," the collective's lead Kevin Abstract tweeted in a since-deleted tweet. "Just got the version ready today for the show." Check out the high-energy clip for 1997 DIANA below, and listen to DON'T BE FAMOUS on Apple Music HERE (track commences at the 48-minute mark).
