The duo of Sly Luke and Ali For The Go introduce us to their new moniker Futura Bloom with a stellar new EP, Honey!
I've been following New Kingz for a long time. The Chicago duo have put in tons work throughout the years, dropping gems throughout SoundCloud. Although they were (and still are) incredibly talented, the duo of Sly Luke and Ali for the Go have decided to take things up a notch and become Futura Bloom
Dropping new EP Honey! was a very strategic move. Instead of dropping a single, they've debuted with a full project. And what an EP! They start off strong with my personal favorite Rare Candy. Instead of going into full rapping mode, they show their re-vamped songwriting skills. Both Luke and Ali seemlesssly integrate melody, using their vocals to dip in and out of the beat. The production from Dougy is astonishing, mixing strong drums with a melodic backdrop.
You'll get the full range of what the duo can do, with trap anthems such as BeenUp and experimental cuts like Cakewalk. I HIGHLY recommend you give this a proper listen, and watch for one of the most dynamic groups in Chicago.
