The third single from siix sense and R03 continues to reflect their genre-blending style with an R&B/trap-inspired track.
Dublin hip-hop artist siix sense has shared another collaboration with his brother R03 in the form of 'lie to me', an experimental R&B/pop song with trap drums in the hook.
With the acoustic guitar and vulnerable vocals by the emerging act contrasted with the trap drum beat by R03 in the hook, the lyrics pull the listener further into the deeper meaning behind the song. Vulnerability and despair as a result of a past relationship create the melancholy theme behind the track, with universal subject matter and a personal, diaristic edge.
'lie to me' follows siix sense's debut single 'not used to' and 'what you want', which were also produced by his brother - who creates under the moniker R03. Brooding, cinematic and captivating, the duo's previous offerings made excellent use of electronic trap beats and alternative hip-hop production.
Last month, siix sense performed a hugely successful gig at The Sound House, Dublin, which had a maximum capacity of 30 in the terrace area and proved the charismatic talent's potential. Irish artist Bless was the special guest of the night while producer R03 played the beats and backing music behind the performer, who delivered an encore track 'IT IS WHAT IT IS' after an impressive 12-song set.
