Amir Obe's new record is called "Four Seasons," but it's hard not to think of anything other than winter when you listen to his latest. The cold months are soon approaching, and Obe's claustrophobic sounds play best during that stretch. It's a similar feel to the music coming out of Toronto over the last few years, a city known for its unforgiving frigidness. Thus, it's no surprise Obe has earned the sought after Drake co-sign.
"Four Seasons"' fading production is matched with a distant vocal recording, as Amir doubles down on the mood he's been establishing on his recent tracks, sounding more sedated than ever as he sings through a muffled filter, "All these drugs don't make me feel no pain."
I just checked in the four seasons
Bitches be looking for reasons
I ain't got no time for teasin'
I'm fucked up, you fucked up
So let's call it even
