I first heard Merlyn Wood on his debut single, “FYE”, around a year ago. Coming out of the normally melancholic Brockhampton crew, “FYE” contained a screamed chorus and screeching synths, akin to something XXX era Danny Brown or early period Death Grips would have indulged in. Unlike the rest of his crew, Merlyn’s sound took me aback as being more auditory attack than subdued sadness. On his newest offering, “Culdesac”, he creeps closer to the signature sound of the collective he associates with, but still keeps the edge that allowed him to stand out among the group. Check out “Culdesac” below.
