It was back in 2018, with the release of his EP cLOUDs, that we were first introdced to the always-adaptable sounds of hunter 505. Now, with a string of consistently strong releases under his belt, the Sydney-based artist has quickly carved out an incredibly unique space for himself in the Australian music scene.
With the release of his latest single please, he continues to establish himself as one of Aussie hip-hop’s most promising emerging acts. Here’s a hot tip from the Happy Mag team… keep an eye on this name, we’re expecting big things.
On his incredible new single please, Sydney-based artist hunter 505 crafts an immersive and sultry slice of R&B-infused hip-hop glory.
Throughout the new single, hunter 505 glides through a woozy blend of soul, R&B, hip-hop, and electronica to deliver a sound uniquely his own. With flawless, glassy production, endearingly rhythmic vocal hooks, and a seriously irresistible bass line, please is oozing with new-school rap charm.
Across the track’s punchy two-and-a-half-minute run-time, a clear musical mission statement is set. The song captures that moment when a girl starts to question her “unsatisfying relationship with their overbearing yet ultimately powerless partner,” and starts to dream of a life with someone else.
These still may be relatively early days for this Sydney artist, but judging by the quality of everything we’ve heard so far, I think we can safely expect plenty more great tunes. In the meantime, do yourself a favour and listen to please above.
