AKINFELAY seeks escape on new single, “Everybody Knows”

Aware but unflustered by hash realities

When the world around you sucks, one way to feel better is by finding solace in music’s spellbinding respite. AKINFELAY’s new single, “Everybody Knows”, provides escape with its free, videogame-like dreamscape, comprised of friends, birds in the sky and crude but child-like rhyme schemes; “I Don’t Really Like To Say Penis/ I’d Rather Just Say My Prick”. Paired with looped synths, nursery rhyme-esque melodies and the occasional ad-libs, “Everybody Knows” is presented as a playful freestyle with lyrics, aware but unflustered by hash realities. Rapping “I Don’t Really Wanna Get This/ I Don’t Really Like People”, AKINFELAY is real enough to know he’s not perfect, but he’d rather focus on things that he feels are worth it like “mother nature”.
