Uplifting sound-play and summertime vibes pour through for a melodically hooky, openly confident and inspiring “I Don’t Care”, from artist and rapper KORY KANE. Featuring a likeable soundscape that engages from the offset for its simple click rhythm and choir-like wave of progression, the single goes on to introduce just enough vocal variants to keep things interesting throughout.
This moves from moments of melody to different rap flows and the clear switch from section to section – with a pace change towards the half-way mark to really inject a little energy. The song always resolves back to the soothing hook from Sam – a touch of melody for essential contrast.
Underneath all of this, the song deals with heavy topics, many of which have been brought to light in the past twelve months – for all of us to contemplate and subsequently adjust our thinking in relation to.
“I Don’t Care” is a smooth single, jazz vibes meet classic hip hop and modern pop, yet there’s also a depth to it that works subtly but surely alongside this musical lightness. Nicely done.
