Idyll Creates Hazy Bliss On Latest Single ‘Sunny B’

The third track lifted from his recently released Asides EP, ‘Sunny B’ puts Brighton-based rapper Idyll back to a place he knows all too well. 

‘Sunny B’ is Idyll’s most introspective cut to date, a track grounded in those fleeting memories of youth, clocked with razor sharp bars covering everything from hard-earned stitchers to smashing pasties, complete with creatively repping his hometown directly on the hook — something not to be understated given how bulky his delivery of this line is. 

Co-founder of rising indie-label, Cult Deep, and frequent collaborator, Guami, lends his production chops here, creating quite the cloudy soundscape, showcasing a somewhat melancholic, almost waltzer-like vibe, ultimately connecting those driving seaside town dots. 

A linked official video for ‘Sunny B’ adds yet another layer, really stretching the ‘sunny aspect of the locations used, offering quite the surreal visualiser. As far as production quality goes, Idyll and his team are operating on a different level right now, with ‘Sunny B’ offering his most complete package to date. 

We reached out to Idyll to ask how he hopes to top this one: “there is some talk of going to the Isle of Skye to shoot a video for ‘Skye Riddim’ off the EP but will probably have to wait til lockdown ends to get round to that haha.”
