THE LYONZ came out of their lengthy silence to share their sonic universe through a second project entitled 2nd U (Pt. 1). Although the release contains many tracks with replay value, "Helicopter Days" could be considered as a worthy introduction to the duo's musical realm.
The Montreal-based duo, comprised of SLV and Norrin, weave mysticism and astronomy in their storytelling. The song's intricate instrumental harmonizes with its lyricism as poetry, jazz inflections, and progressive melodies meld together to form one narrative. Bubbling talent of this kind is bound to propel Montreal's rap scene to the main stage.
"Helicopter Days" is part of a cohesive offering. The whole project is worth a listen from start to finish. 2nd U (Pt.1) is available for streaming here.
To the top we go, got a leaf to blow
Got a sheet to hold, and got a map to gold
With a tap to show, when we touch the road
Unbelievable, but we believe it though
