Listen to Cayo Coco’s new single, “Slide,” which is streaming everywhere today. “Slide” is a contemporary Hip Hop/Alternative hybrid that covers the pitfalls of expectation & discovery of self-worth that sonically appears as the result of an artist who grew up on Kevin Parker & The Weeknd. Lead by barreling bass guitar and heavy drums, on the surface, “Slide” is structured as an alternative song. However, Cayo’s vocal delivery is shaped in a modern, melodic form – spanning alongside cloud-like synths per Tame Impala, while maintaining the cadence and use of space reminiscent of a falsetto-Swae Lee delivery. Cayo Coco’s upcoming EP, A Beautiful Moon, is due 5/15.
In a world of noise, Los Angeles based rapper, Cayo Coco, is nothing more than silent.
“I tend to observe opposed to interact,” states the 22 year old singer, producer & visual artist. “I’ve never felt comfortable in the social world.”
