Slut Magic’s collaboration with Gud Babu on “Rainbow Eyes” brings together a broad spectrum of musical elements from live instruments, samples, politically charged raps, melancholic vocals and downtempo structure. The song progresses as a succession of layers of emotional intensity before dropping off into the sound of engines with a doleful violin over the top. The whole song is crafted in a way to give it multiple dynamics that somehow sync up in the overall architecture of a song that refuses to sit comfortably in a single genre. It’s a hybrid of hip-hop, darkwave and indie rock without sounding like its trying too hard to make those instincts work together. The narrative of a love song overlaps with social criticism in a way that we don’t hear often enough. Supposedly this group tours in flamboyant outfits and and the “Deep South” can expect a tour from the group in its “Slut Magic School Bus” in support of its new album whose title is as yet secret and the color of its vinyl similarly under wraps.
