Enjoy this immersive new offering.
Kelvyn Colt’s Mind of Colt Pt. 1 EP is one of my favorite extended play listens of late. The track opens with a sorrowful, introspective track titled “Mama.” The instrumental is centered around a somber piano riff with atmospheric noise crooning amidst the keys. Colt, however, changes the pace of this track masterfully, as a beat change completely flips the song’s mood from borderline depressing to truly motivational, saying “Mama I will come home and bring you platinum and gold, that’s the least I could do.”
To me, this was far and wide the project’s standout track, but the rest of the project was still highly impressive, just not nearly as emotionally immersive as the opener. The remaining five tracks can be characterized by sensible amounts of autotune on his verses and booming, dark production. Colt’s lyrics also shift from nostalgia or love to more spiritual overtones, with religious imagery and eternal questions being asked around every corner.
Another memorable moment was on the track “Weakend,” where Colt shocks listeners with his jaw-droppingly large vocal range, shredding the instrumental with a soulful punch of vocals. This EP shows more and more why Kelvyn Colt is on his way to becoming a household name. As he experiments more and more with new sounds and vocal styles, he only improves, as this stretching of himself in the lane of artistry will lead to him lasting in this industry.
