Darcy Baylis continues an impressive run of releases with ‘Same Page’, a new collaboration with Chinese rapper Bloodzboi. A departure from his 2017 debut album ‘Intimacy & Isolation’, his newer music has seen him delve more into an emo rap sound. Written during and after a period of travelling, the songs have a lyrical openness and all sound like they were written in very low light.

The collaboration with Bloodzboi came about after the pair met online last year. They fired ideas back and forth over the net, and then Baylis visited the rapper in Beijing so they could work together directly, resulting in ‘Same Page’. The first track from an upcoming new EP, simple guitar and keys run through the middle of it, underpinned by a heavy bassline that elevates Baylis and Bloodzboi’s vocals.

Baylis’s new EP, ‘S7E3’, is out on 26 Apr. Watch the video for ‘Same Page’, shot in Beijing during the trip where the track was written, here.
