Boy, do we love an industrial feel to everything! We grew up on rapcore and this music video, though rap/hip hop, has all the elements for an old school headbanger, just like Rage Against The Machine back in the day.
The video begins with shots alluding to communal and caste-based violence. And then Pratika gets right to it with some hard-ass lyrics. Uff, the style! Her voice reminds us so much of Shirin Valentine's twenty-three years ago. Also, don't miss her sinister smile at 02:36.
It's so good already and then it gets better with Krantinaari (Love the name) hits us with, literally, some of the best desi rapping we've ever come across. One takeaway - You don't wanna fuck with these ladies, that's for sure. We're still recovering from their words!
Produced by ParbhuNeigh, the hook's addictive as hell. Since we begun writing the hundred words or so above, we've listened to the track three times already. Released on October 2nd, just two days ago, this reminder of a track couldn't have come at a better time. For Covid, caste and covid+caste.
