Discovery: Slow Turn

The curiously titled Jiya is a relatively recent release from Slow Turn, an American artist that mixes together elements of rock and hip-hop into one wonderful package.

Jiya is a really interesting song, due to the mix of genres and sounds present in the music. It starts off with a slow guitar melody that runs throughout the whole of the song, giving the music an ominous feel. The vocals alternate between singing and a semi-rapping style, with the lyrics being about the trappings of addiction, suiting the dark atmosphere of the music well.
