Pittsburgh experimental hip-hop artist Connie Roses returns with a new single called “Bells and Bugs.” Inspired by artists who combine depth with eccentric humor such as JPEGMAFIA and Zelooperz, Connie aims for the deeper understandings of postmodern America which is drenched in the influence of corrupt politics, social media addiction, and a shared sense of self-destruction.
His latest song, “Bells and Bugs” is an atmospheric, versatile track that showcases his ability to blend an array of influences into a cohesive, engaging mixture. Painting a vivid picture of Roses’ inner world and perspective, the track’s pensive, sharply-crafted lyrics pair well with the textural, thought-provoking instrumental, making for a track that inspires deep thought and reflection while remaining poignantly critical throughout. Moreover, Roses’ blend of hypnotic hip-hop sonics with more melodic stylings makes this a track that is easy to re-visit, giving listeners a refreshing take on underground hip-hop. “Bells and Bugs” finds Roses shining lyrically and as far as songwriting, with emotive, memorable lines and infectious vocal inflections.
