New Orleans artist Pell is in bloom. With a voice made for rapping, the upcoming artist has grown his career on the back of his bright cadence and teetering flow. His writing is as sunny as his disposition, but not without a good dose of reality. With that, he delivers his latest EP, ‘girasoul,’ a portrait of his growth and flash of where his potential can still take him.
We still get the sunny and witty Pell that we first loved on 2014’s ‘Floating While Dreaming,’ but now he’s bringing his NOLA roots to a more LA-inspired soundscape, while enlisting the likes of Saba and New York singer VÉRITÉ to give the EP some body. The album tackles themes of patience and struggle, and how they’re essential for growth. On this EP, Pell has leveled up every facet of his artistry.
