London O’Connor // Oatmeal
Hip hop is constantly evolving. As a genre that found its place centered around the art of storytelling, it doesn’t always take the most engrossing tale to capture an audience and get heads moving, and the debut track from newcomer London O’Connor is proof. Describing ”Oatmeal" with a few lines about hisimaginary uncle who spends his days eating boxes of general mills and watching too much tv, London might be peculiar but the track also presents him as ambitious. Gloomy and equally effervescent, "Oatmeal" quickly unravels into a track that’s alluring and in a lot ways, ingenious . It’s an odd but much welcomed change of pace that shows the many personalities that hip hop can take on and even though it’s a debut, I’m sure that London O’Connor has a lot more surprises up his sleeve.
