Following a string of impressive singles, “Neiman Marcus (Hollywood),” “2 The Weekend,” and “Things In The Way,” Porsh Bet$ delivers his genre-bending EP, Things in the Way.
Porsh Bet$ has the perfect blend of story telling, lush production, and experimentation. The project kicks off with the pop-inspired “Nieman Marcus (Hollywood),” which kicks off the EP with perfect vibes through delicate plucky guitars and a blend between indie pop and hip hop. “2 The Weekend,” is an example of his ability to combine genres with production that resembles rock and flows and bars that would fit in the emo rap lane. It’s anthemic and another perfect set up for the rest of the project.
He continues with “Things In The Way,” which has atmospheric synths that resemble a Mac Demarco or Dayglow track. He takes the production and puts his own spin on the track with a catchy chorus and beautiful vocals and layers of hums throughout. He follows with one of his most impressive tracks to date with “Here.” It brings a detuned guitar melody with an earworm hook, bringing that much-needed summer nostalgia in February.
Porsh closes with “Passenger,” that is the perfect song to play when playing volleyball on Venice Beach. It caps off a project that, while only five songs, is packed with many different directions of fun production, impeccable hooks, and a diverse range of genres. Listen below:
