25-year-old producer and rapper Tiny Pilot’s debut project showcases sweet bursts of pop rap and introspection.
The rapper whose real name is Adam McCullough brings lo-fi stylings across four tracks introducing himself as an artist with a taster of what to expect from him in the future. On the intro What I’m Sayin’ he talks himself up over a kooky beat. While the rapping won’t get you off your seat, the production keeps the track interesting.
The selling point of the EP comes with the banger Another Day which has all the ingredients for the hit which McCullough seems to be longing for on this release. Its chorus is instantly catchy and memorable with bright synths and a Timberlake-esque refrain. It also contains clever punchlines like “Spit so long the metronome’s a bleep test”.
The rest of the EP sees McCullough discussing anxieties of becoming an adult and the departure from the fearlessness of youth. On Sunday, Sunday, Sunday he raps “But the fear of getting older really hits on me/ To save up for a mortgage/ Life insurance- can’t afford this”.
While at times McCullough can lack a captivating presence as a rapper on the mic, his production, writing and ear for a great hook show real potential and look forward to hearing what he does next!
