If sadness has become the defining sound and aesthetic of the decade, its pioneering figurehead is Yung Lean, the Swedish oddball rapper and Dazed 100 graduate whose heavy-lidded hip hop gems, 00s-channelling DIY videos and Auto-tuned creations have made him one of this generation’s most unique creative forces.
The track, which stands for ‘Air Force 1’s’, features hypnotic, slow-turning production from fellow Sad Boy Yung Sherman, as well as the talents of Gravity Boys’ illusive icon, ECCO2K. “Chain like a seahorse, It’s everything Leandoer, all white Dior, all I wear is Dior,” raps Lean, with his distinctly warped, bleary-eyed vocals. “Catch me on my samsung, SBE anthem, I be in the night creeping round like the phantom.”
