Single Review: “Genesis” – JailBird Sage

Making melancholic rap bangers since 2018, JailBird Sage is an underground star from Melbourne, Australia whose brand new track “Genesis” is set to bring so many more eyes on this underrated artist.

Taking influence from the likes of Juice Wrld, Allday, and Oliver Francis, JailBird blends blissful pop-rap with infectious alt-indie songwriting on “Genesis”.

Mixed and mastered by renowned Melbourne engineer AyoTrae, “Genesis” is all about JailBird’s musical evolution, spotlighting how much his sound has matured and levelled up in the last two years. With a hard-hitting melodic flow that hits like fellow Aussie The Kid Laroi, “Genesis” could be the track that sets JailBird up for a huge year if he can keep this sonic quality and ferocious work-rate up.

The best part about this track though has to be JailBird’s swaggering confidence and nonchalant finesse behind the mic. It’s so infectious, it gives you a spring in your step when you’re listening to it and forces you to hit that repeat button. It’s sad rap, but it’s sad rap with a shoulder-shrugging coolness.

“Genesis” is a a monumental drop for JailBird Sage. It marks his sonic level up with a swaggering track that you can’t help but stick on repeat and vibe out too. There’s no more sleeping on Melbourne’s melancholic maestro after this one.
