MP3: The Freeze Tag Releases Second Single From Concept EP
Second Single From Animated Concept EP Tackles Doubters, Perseverance
At its core, Hamster Kid, the new EP from The Freeze Tag, a duo comprised of producer Cassettes Won't Listen and MC Bisco Smith, is about the constant battle of overcoming doubt, both internal and external, in the quest to discover and immerse in life's passions - and turn those passions into a means of not only survival but success. And while the EP's lead single, "The Hustle," pulled from each of the EP's other four songs, telling the complete story of Hamster Kid as he traverses his way through restriction in his quest for freedom, this new single, "The Voices," is where the story all begins. "Jealousy, hate, envy - I think the whole song really speaks to this," explains Bisco, "but it's also about the push, about people pushing you until you snap. All the voices in your head are their voices - the doubters"
From jump, "The Voices" puts the listener into a eerily watchful zone, as CWL's haunting lyrics resonant atop a mix of dark strings and echoing vocal harmonies, singing "I hear them talking, but it don't mean a thing." Bisco's assured vocals, however, serve as the perfect counterpoint to the apprehension felt in the chorus, as he asserts "I hear them talking, talking, but they ain't saying much... they're talking too much," further brushing aside misguided doubt as he raps, "Most of them fools; don't see the jewels, only lust/ Trying to snatch it up and leave it broken and crushed."
As with all five songs on the multi-media and visual-focused EP, "The Voices" will also be accompanied by an animated video courtesy of world-renowned street artist Bishop 203 and video producer and director Mike Vidoli.
The Freeze Tag's Hamster Kid will be released May 3, 2011 through the duo's collective label, Daylight Curfew.
