Even though it seems like months ago, Audio Push’s Come As You Are just released in September*. Since then, I’ve managed – or they’ve managed, rather – to stay on my playlist simply because the project has a balanced groove that’s not too club-leaning but not really lyric-heavy either. Come… occupies that middle lane of newer artists still searching for their sound while we, the listeners, learn who they are as well.
With their newest offering, “So Far To Go,” the two reassert everything stated above by picking a Dilla instrumental to write a few more pages in their story. There’s candor in hearing them admit their shortcomings as boys growing to be young men and artists. Their verses paint the picture of two guys who were minor knuckleheads that eschewed the bad path in exchange for a shot at music. So far, so good as their musical output proves.
The duo just set off on their Come As You Are tour, the dates for which can be found via their site.
* — The more attention Audio Push gets should inversely affect Hit-Boy’s need to rap. So, ideally, we want to see them get a big push, no pun.
