The respective video pays homage to classic 90’s video stylings of Missy Elliot, Janet Jackson, Busta Rhymes and more. With its stark contrast in colors and use of both new and old technology, the duo channels the meaning of their upcoming double EP, Duality due out on January 10th.
James “Taz” Conley (lyricist) and Riley “Goon” Taylor (producer) are the rambunctious masterminds behind the captivating flow and sensual beats reminiscent of legends such as Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole and Rage Against The Machine. “Back Up” is a song that was crafted out of the energy felt when someone is just a little too close and or getting too aggressive in your personal space. “We paired that energy with some futuristic sound designed to complement the animalistic natures of the vocals,” says Taz. The primal drumbeats married with the vocal promise of pushing the limits, encourages listeners to push their limits as well.
The duo complements each other’s talent without overpowering one another, creating an easy flow of symbiotic genius. “We are very accepting of each other’s creativity so when one of us has an idea, the other can easily see the vision and we’ll explore that world together.” “Back Up” is the first single off their highly anticipated double EP Duality,and serves as the perfect introduction for new listeners.
