Reliably informed

A genre renown for name-dropping moments of social relevance, NE-O meets the demands of rap in new track Miley Cyrus. With strong rhyming couplets against the steadfast blend of rhythm and bassline, NE-O creates a satisfying chorus with the focal hook “get myself flowers like my name is Miley Cyrus”.

NE-O’s vocal delivery builds a gratifying cadence, with the sonic backdrop of repetitive bass. The central beat falls amidst a blend of layered call outs, with NE-O’s voice taking centre stage. With careful timing, NE-O’s delivery becomes an instrument in its own right; balancing beats of silence, there’s an intrinsic musicality many aspire to when navigating the rap genre. Catch NE-O alongside Eyeconic on Friday 26th July at Newcastle’s Lubber Fiend.
