Slowthai’s decision to yield the floor to Blake and Mount Kimbie is a wise one. The track is poignant because the rapper dials down his previous desire to be the loudest person in the room. A new chapter of the bumpy Slowthai story has begun, and his willingness to take a step back and let the music do the talking on ‘feel away’ could prove to be its first masterstroke.
Nice verse from Slowthai in tribute to his late baby brother, but I spent the whole time wondering how James would fit on this Mount Kimbie beat, but he slid in like butter. What was Mariah Carey doing on the end lol.

Luckily, "fall away" has bucked this trend both in terms of subject matter, style and, most importantly, overall quality, showing us the more vulnerable and personal side of slowthai's work while also taking a step back and ... read more
The best song i heard from Slowthai so far, probably one of my favorite pop singles this year. James Blake vocals are totally on point, the video was very funny yet touching with him dedicating the song to his brother
