Nocturnal Sunshine, Young M.A, Gangsta Boo ‘Pull Up’ with new collaboration
Genre-navigating dynamo Maya Jane Coles dons her Nocturnal Sunshine alias for “Pull Up,” a flippant hip-hop outing that arrives not as a standalone single, but as the edgy introduction to her sophomore Nocturnal Sunshine LP, Full Circle. Nocturnal Sunshine couples Gangsta Boo’s cautionary verses with the dexterous deadpan of Young M.A’s flow on the slow-rolling production.
The dark, undergirding background beat is devoid of the heavy, sustaining bass familiar to Nocturnal Sunshine’s aesthetic, but not to the detriment of “Pull Up.” Nocturnal Sunshine’s lighter approach to bass on this record allows the cut to fully foreground Gangsta Boo and Young M.A’s contributions, which glide atop sinister tones to extend the menacing invitation of the track’s title.
Full Circle will land on Nov. 1.
