Whether you’re ‘Staying In, Going Out,’ check out Charlie Steel
Location: London, UK
FFO: Kate Nash, Elijah Who
Whether you like “staying in” or “going out,” UK rapper and producer Charlie Steel has the soundtrack for your night with his debut single ‘Staying in Going Out.’
A down-to-earth lo-fi bop, ‘Staying in Going Out’ is all that and more, bringing a deliciously unique flavour with it’s meandering bedroom pop beats and laid-back, rolling melodies. Revolving around the anxieties of parties and hanging out with people “as honest as a modern politician,” Steel flows over the beat with a casual-cool attitude, delivering punchy lines and relatable snippets about a girl working 9 to 5’s and living for the Fridays. It’s like lo-fi hip hop teamed up with a male Kate Nash, and it’s absolutely brilliant.
With a debut EP in the works aiming to be released in the coming year, keep your eyes and ears peeled for more Charlie Steel.
