"CAIN-Trust Issues: Candidly Poignant Urban Poetry"

Urban Indie newcomer CAIN has recently released their debut self-titled EP providing 5 exceptionally raw singles which combine elements of Hip Hop, Electro Pop, and Indie.

The best introduction to his sound is the standout single “Trust Issues”, I mean, we all have them, don’t we? It’s either that or naivety. There may not be all too many artists who are willing to admit it quite so candidly, but that’s just part of the New York solo artist’s quintessential charm.

Even though the lyricism and CAIN’s vocal style simply oozes melancholy, the Hip Hop beat infuses plenty of energy into the single – especially when you get to the chorus where Trust Issues evolves into an EDM Pop soundscape before bringing the tempo right back down. In short, Trust Issues is an emotive rollercoaster of a hit which stands as a testament to CAIN’s futuristic talents and dedication to creating music which does plenty more than just skirt around issues of superficiality.

"Review: CAIN- "CAIN""

he solo musical project of New York based actor, singer, and recording artist Jacob Anthony Cain, the eponymous CAIN has become one of the most exciting new talents to rise from the underground scene. A unique creative vision, CAIN has recently released his self-titled debut EP, billing it as a compilation of different musical influences, exploring elements of hip-hop, rock, electro-pop and punk.

As a concept, it’s a wonderfully intriguing idea, and over the course of five distinct tracks, ‘CAIN’ showcases a defiant creative spirit that sadly seems to be getting rarer and rarer in modern music.

Dipping a toe tentatively into ballad territory, ‘Trust Issues’ is one of Cain’s most impressive and nuanced tracks, combining contrasting emotions, sound and styles that are all held together through a series of light flickering guitar strings and the rolling waves of percussion. It’s a definitive highlight of the album and probably the most authentic showing of Cain’s talents. Closing with ‘In The Clouds’, we’re treated with a Bastille-esque opening and more of the same electro-pop sounds. It’s a step down from the visceral splendour of ‘Trust Issues’, but a pleasing way to end the release, striking out with a faux-rap verse and a chorus that reach for dazzling pop highs.

A release that improves with each track, ‘CAIN’ falls in an in-between space between the glossy, unabashed pop of Chvrches and the crowd-pleasing rock of Saint Raymond, managing to capture elements of both artists’ successes, but not quite managing to emulate them. It’s polished, well-produced, and certainly an impressive EP, but there’s also a constant hint that it could be something much, much more. - Broken 8 Records
