2020 is off to a huge start with veteran MIST releasing both the visual and audio to his latest single “Savage”. The aggressive hip-hop and dancehall-inspired track is instantly thumping and sees the rapper toy with his wordplay and rhyme-scheme throughout. Guiding every-line are sound-effects such as gun-shots and glass shattering, adding an anthemic backing that engages listeners throughout.
The accompanying visuals are even more compelling. MIST glides across an abandoned race-course in cars, bikes and an array of other vehicles. Instantly atmospheric, it feels as though the word-smith is ready for war this year. “Savage” appears to be a buzz-single, but regardless, more material is likely on the way.
“Savage” follows an incredible 2019 which included a top 10 hit for MIST (“So High” for six weeks) and opening for Drake.
