Tyler, The Creator recently popped out with a new track for us all to coo over titled ‘435’ as well as hints that a follow-up to last year’s album Flower Boy was possibly on the way. The artists has done nothing to dampen that speculation as he’s released the brilliant ‘GELATO’.
Expertly timed with a huge heatwave, the track is a slinky and subtle affair, remixing Jacquees’ hit ‘No Validation’ taken form his album 4275. Tyler hits all the points you need, heavy bass, a touch of the sunshine and some deeply personal observational lyrics – all spat over a slow jam with a sliding groove.
At only 2 minutes long, Tyler is giving us a flavour of this ‘GELATO’ we can likely expect more of a sundae to come but for now we’ll take this taste and cool down our afternoon.
