Something's in the water over at the Brockhampton house.
We've been covering Kevin Abstract and the whole crew for years now, but we haven't seen things come together for all these guys like they have this summer. I can't think of a weak song they've put out over the last few months, which is impressive considering the rate these guys are churning out songs right now. We like to throw around phrases like "these guys are on a hot streak" all the time, but this run Brockhampton is on as a collective right now is pretty unreal.
That run continues today with "Swamp," the newest single from their next album, Saturation II. Another bouncy slice of left-field hip-hop with plenty of pop appeal, the song comes packaged with the latest in a series of Kevin Abstract-directed videos shot in their LA neighborhood (with more quirky visual effects from Kevin Doan). There's no secret formula why everything's working so well right now, but it's obvious how much fun these guys are having in the process.
The other day, Kevin tweeted that he'll look back on these days and miss them when they're over. We will too. This is special.
Watch "Swamp" above, read our interview with them here, and continue for some background on the Brockhampton boys.
