Yung Goblin is an autotune master.
The ear of the underground masses grew very tired of the same typical drum kit sounds, and was even more fed up by traditional instruments producing the same boring noise, so new experimental voice patterns and non-traditional sounds and drums began to be tinkered with, and eventually became the standard. From auto-tune, to pitch reduction, and even flat out screaming, rappers have done nearly everything to try and set a new stylistic trend.
Rappers discovered autotune and ran with it, and artists like Pollàri and Ron$oCold have even turned it into a career. It is an easy way to make a song sound better than it would in your normal cadence or tone, but it is a very difficult concept to master. Yung Goblin, a surprising breakout artist of Nashville,could easily be the next name to be thrown in that category.
Goblin’s tracks are melodic and spacey, and very easy to listen to. Men lie, women lie, but numbers don’t, and his streaming totals are nothing short of mesmerizing for an artist so young and climb with every release. As only a high school senior, he has already built up a major cult following of other adolescents, and amassed tremendous online streaming numbers, with songs “Yochboy,” and “U Ain Nun,” gathering tens of thousands of listens. Recently, he and producer w1erdo teamed up to make a new single, titled “Laughing to the Bank.”
Goblin will fall into this category at the rate he is working. Check out “Laughing to the Bank” here:
