Premiere: Perth's Alex Parkman continues to soar with Red & Blue Pill

Already three tracks down in 2019, the Perth rising rap name is quickly becoming one to watch.

Despite being a name we weren't too familiar with even six months ago, it's hard not to say that Alex Parkman is primed to be a break-out act for the WA rap scene in 2019. Earlier this year, on the high-energy King of the Block, the Perth-via-Zimbabwe musician found himself being labelled a "name worth messing with in the twelve months ahead," highlighting his effortlessly-smooth flow which that time around, glided over thick bass kicks and gripping melodies which really encouraged you to pay attention to the single's quick-flying duration. 

In the time since, Parkman has found himself only securing this status as an act on the rise, with a second track - Drop It - now leading to a third for the year, premiering alongside its release today. Red & Blue Pill is another track focused on his clanging, quick-paced sound, with charged bass kicks meeting clanging percussion and hazy melodies to create a trap-inspired backbone for Parkman to glide over. Vocal-wise, you can really feel Parkman's confidence as a rapper beginning to blossom; he's somewhat light-hearted and low-key, but also driven and intricate with his wording, each word finding itself a place over the rich production underneath.

It comes as Alex Parkman thrives off co-signs from Spotify and MTV, and with more planned, it's hard not seeing Alex Parkman end his year as one of WA's most exciting names.
