KiLLKODY is still rocking that “2 GOTH 4 ME” swagger to the fullest.
As a rising voice in the new wave’s alt-punk niche, the Cleveland-based artist is still on the come-up as one of our generation’s most energetic young acts. Off the back of his latest single “Patrick Swayze” with CHXPO and frequent collaborator BigHead, the emo-rager enlists an eclectic cast of characters on his scintillating SoundCloud EP HELLRAISER.
KiLLKODY makes waves with rock-inspired track ‘Patrick Swayze’
Exclusively released on the underground streaming platform, the 4-track project features Kody providing a small sample of what he’s truly capable of. Enlisting the help of blossoming underground talents in Zelly Ocho, CHXPO, Caspr and others, the project is filled with euphoric, winding synths and bombastic 808-heavy production. Throughout the tape, Kody brings forth a mosh-inducing energy consistent with his budding sound.
Seen teasing new music with rage pioneer Trippie Redd, the 1400 affiliate continues to etch his name alongside the likes of rock-centric rappers in Jasiah, Zillakami, POORSTACEY and a plethora of others.
On the surface, Kody’s sound is an energetic blur of new wave rage and distorted emo-inspired melodies. However, he proves to be more than just another up-and-coming new wave lyricist. Rising to acclaim from his emo anthem “SHE 2 GOTH 4 ME” — and sitting at over 33,000 Spotify monthly listeners — the self-proclaimed Goth Boy displays a refined track presence and unique voice altogether. Complemented by submerged guitar licks, droning 808s, piercing synths and hectic harmonies all crashing into one another, Kody continuously shines amid the melodic chaos encapsulating HELLRAISER’s sound — bringing listeners a taste of the hell he’s raising.
