TRACE “Low”

Next Wave’s low-key been on my radar for some time now following a string of releases from artists I really admire like Bearson, Manila Killa, Louis The Child, and more. The name behind their latest release doesn’t hold quite the star-power that the others do, but rest assured “Low” might be the pick of the bunch (that’s high praise coming from me mind you). Strip away the star power you get with the other Next Wave releases and you’re left with a track that at this point might even be underrated because people don’t know who TRACE is. Ironically, her track more than sells itself. “Low” is a haunting, melancholic, and stripped-down track with wistful elements and an air of refreshing emotional honesty.
