Atlanta based artist Stori Brooks has released a song “Say Hi” from her upcoming EP titled “Everything is Gr8 (in space.)” She describes her music as “alternative hip hop,” which is good way to put it. It has more of a artistic and melodic quality than most hip hop. I especially like the backing of “Say Hi” which is mellow and futuristic. Without the vocals, this song could easily just be classified as synthwave. Her lyrics are poetic and almost abstract. Stori Brooks’ singing style is eloquent and calming, matching the mood of the music perfectly. I would recommend this song even if you don’t like hip hop, as it doesn’t fall into the stereotypes or cliches of the genre. When one thinks of Atlanta hip hop, this isn’t what typically comes to mind, but it’s actually better.
