It’s official, the Golden Roy Killaz are back in the booth. They came back into the music scene after a year long hiatus with Thoughts/Thinking Pt. 2 last month, and it’s clear that they’re taking this project seriously in 2016. Despite taking 12 months off from making music together, their sound is refined, their lyrics are invigorating, and their production quality is better than ever before.
Whereas their last release seemed to close a chapter in their lives and touched on an emotional subject, ’12:34 a.m.’ is a turn up anthem that doesn’t require any dissection. The production combines an eerie ambiance with aggressive hip-hop percussion; panning lead synths and heavily filtered vocal samples comprise the core of their instrumental, while layers of cymbals, snares, bass kicks, and bells keep the roughly 118 bpm pace.
The lyrics are about getting faded and pushing your liver to its limit, which shouldn’t be hard for the majority of us to relate to. Parker’s vocals have a distinct Tory Lanez feel this time around, while Hayden’s bars are hyphy and packed with clever analogies. It’s a song to take shots to, a song to smoke to, a song to grind to — whatever you’re doing at 12:34 a.m., I guarantee you this will make a fitting backtrack. Check it out, show GRK some love on Soundcloud and Twitter, and be on the lookout for more material from them in the near future.
