Irish rapper Reffi has just shared a chilled out new track examining his relationship with religion and more.
We caught up with him for a quick chat where he told us originally the song was devoid of any real concept.
“I was just trying to fit lyrics to the beat, but as time advanced and I starting delving deeper into the lyrics it took on a meaning of lust, hope and transparency in a sense. Right now with my music I try best to implement a message within it yet still have people be able to jive to it and all that.”
He has recruited Nick Bowens for a verse on the track too.
“He was someone I have been following on SoundCloud for a minute,” Reffi explains. “And I thought his vocals would sound right on the beat so I sent it to him and he was feeling it and couple days later I got the vocals back from him.”
The young MC says his massively inspired by the likes of Mick Jenkins, Earl Sweatshirt and Loyle Carner, and he uses his pseudonym to express feelings publicly that he usually would keep hidden.
“I don’t invite people in to my personal life too much so I go by Reffi, just a made up name because I don’t need nobody searching me up! I’m a class A introvert, how I express myself on tracks versus my real life persona are completely different, but I enjoy being able to open up on tracks then retreat back to my cave and contemplate life and shit.”
