Clyde Kelly – Bands Up

Clyde Kelly’s new single “Bands Up” represents a clear step forward for the young MC, who appears to be finding his sound somewhere between boom-bap hip-hop and electronic dance music. “Bands Up” is an up-beat track with a tropical feel, and the first line the hook, “finally got my bands up,” is delivered pristinely over the see-sawing, fuzz-washed synth.

“Bands Up” is a first-time collaboration between Clyde Kelly and LA-based producer selam., who also mixed and mastered the record.
