Artists To Watch In 2015: Raury
RAURY appears to be the alt-boy rapper of your wildest dreams. With a debut project entitled ‘Indigo Child’, a spot at ST.JEROMES LANEWAY FESTIVAL, and collaborating with SBTRKT for their new album- RAURY keeps laying down the foundations for being an Artist to watch in 2015.
Hailing from Atlanta, RAURY has gained recent attention for his smooth vocal work on SBTRKT‘s track ‘Higher’ while his own brand of tunes seem to ooze out the influences of FRANK OCEAN or ANDRE 3000. We are all feeling the love for this fresh face, especially his EP ‘Indigo Child’ which features creamy bass and lashes of sweet sampling.
Playing St. Jeromes Laneway Festival is another coup for all you Hip Hop lovers out there. The 18-year-old will no doubt bring his fresh formula of alternative tunes and samples mixed with solid Hip Hop rhymes. If you can’t make the big day, he has sideshows booked for Sydney and Melbourne, with tickets available on Moshtix.
His personalised style of brash beats and melting vocals will leave you wanting more. You’ve heard it here first, RAURY will be making tidal waves within both the indie and hip hop worlds consecutively come 2015. Just make sure you bail on that bar line to be there when he lays down his tracks at Laneway, you’ll regret it otherwise.
