In the last few months, Trey Palms has been preparing for the release of his comeback EP Image is Nothing by releasing a string of singles consisting of "Fly Off" and "Hold On," both of which show Palms's improvement as an artist in the past few years. With a new electronically-driven sound that's bound to get any party started or club bumping, Palms is breaking into a genre that takes cues from the EDM scene, current trends in pop, and, of course, hip-hop. I can't necessarily put a name to the genre, but what I can confidently say in regards to it is that the Virginia-based artist is killing it. For example, on the track "Homesick," which features vocalist Paige Rosoff, Palms eloquently traverses the tranquil yet riveting production of the track all while pouring out his soul as he raps about his daily struggle to make it in music. He then juxtaposes the tone set by "Homesick" by letting loose a up-beat fluid-like lyrical flow over the pulsating, and gripping "Back Of My Mind".
With Image Is Nothing Palms has found his sound as an artist and is definitely a artist to watch out for in the future. Support Trey Palms by following him on Soundcloud and be sure to download his album Image Is Nothing here.
