TNGHT release third track from impending return EP, ‘First Body’
TNGHT continue their comeback season with the second single from their impending II follow-up album of their 2012 self-titled debut EP. The track is called “First Body,” and it follows the previously released “Dollaz,” set to both be packaged alongside the full-length on Nov. 12.
With a variety of wind instruments, the trap-leaning track dips its toes into a snake-charming melody, alternating between a more airy flute and a pungi sound for the hook. Low-octave vocal chops join in on the melody for the second verse, while the track dives into its cobra hypnosis chorus with a bed of thumping kicks and clicking high-end percussion.
The seven-year reuniting was also followed by a tasteful BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix showing off the duo’s newfound eclectic taste. The pair broke their silence with the single “Serpent,” which leaned a bit more experimental though still hit a peak energy with thumping 808s. “Dollaz” and “First Body” seamlessly pick-up where TNGHT left off, revisiting their signature maximalist hip-hop-inspired trap.
