Roy is not unlike many of his peers currently working in the pop-leaning side of the underground hip-hop and R&B. His latest, “Thunder”, showcases a strong sense of sunny melancholy reminiscent of the more recent, mature work of Childish Gambino. self-produced with help from Joba & bear / face (both of who have essentially mastered this type of sunset-at-the-beach production through their work with LA-by-way-of-Texas group Brockhampton), the song itself moves through a series of parts, starting off with a simple pop-rap tune depicting what seems to be a recent breakup, and then slowly transitioning into an instrumental finish that could’ve fit right into a song from a mid-00s indie rock band. After proving that he can pull off a track this ambitious and beautiful this early into his career, Roy is definitely a young artist that deserves your attention now and in the future.
