Artist: Raury
Album: Indigo Child
Released: Aug. 25, 2014
Label: Columbia Records

“Does anything last forever?” is the the final question experimental indie-folkhop artist Raury asks at the end of the dreamy reminisce track “Woodcrest Manor.” I was hoping that his project, Indigo Child, was going to last forever.

Raury is one of the new breed of experimental artists out of Atlanta that’s gaining attention. So much attention, in fact, that he was recently signed to Columbia Records.

“Indigo Child” is the debut project from the 18 year old.  Is it indie? Is it hip hop? Is it folk? Is it even a genre yet? Raury’s sound has definite inspiration from artists like Andre 3000, Kid Cudi and Kanye West, but also shows inspiration from bands like Kings of Leon and Bon Iver. Indigo Child lifts your spirits, makes you think of yourself in a different light and makes you want to stand up and shout.

Raury’s revolutionary, higher consciousness, yet chill out sound and lyrics make him a diamond in the rough compared to some other artists that have gotten recognition lately. Raury takes us on a musical journey that makes us want to join together, rebel and overthrow the status quo.

Raury also takes us into his personal life. He show’s his confidence in the song “Wildfire,” saying, “a savior of the past, a hero of the future.” Indigo Child is a great introduction to Raury as an artist and shows the great potential he has in creating authentic, real music.

Indigo Child is definitely a breath of fresh air from other music and artists that have been coming out of Atlanta. If you’re looking for a project that doesn’t sound like anything you’ve ever heard before, Indigo Child is the mixtape for you.
