Joelistics’ great gift is the crafting of common language into evocative turns of phrase. He opened up a new lane in local hip hop with his debut album Voyager, and In the Morning suggests that he’s confidently moving further from the pack. Celebrating the realness of living in the moment without glossing over absent milestones, In The Morning is so much more than a left field indie rap anthem.
Drawing on influences from ‘80s-era English post punk and ‘90s grunge through to hip hop, the Melbourne-based MC, producer and singer offers us a ride into his trademark excursions into the human psyche. The single is taken from new album Blue Volume, set for release on Elefant Traks in June.
Joelistics will launch In The Morning with a co-headline tour with AMP-nominated Dialectrix.
