LA-based psych rapper Sahtyre announces new EP, shares new single "Numb" to help you escape all those pesky feelings

Still coming down from the high of 2017’s Cassidy Howell, LA rapper Sahtyre hasn’t stopped cutting sharp, shadowy lyrics. But to the feelings and attachments to this difficult, addiction-filled world, he’s become “Numb.”

On the first single from his upcoming EP, The Gorgeous Darkness, Sahtyre battles his demons with the blade of apathy, self-questioning to oblivion what’s happened to him to bring him to this point. Alongside fellow L-Alien Trizz, the rave-addict-turned-rapper pulls on strings all too similar to the late Chester Benington (and yes, not only in the naming of the song). The beat is a rhythm pulled straight from the party floor, but lyrically, Sahtyre attempts nothing if not an out-and-out escape. Or, to hear him tell it:

Everyday as we struggle to understand our own feelings we’re bombarded with millions of subliminal messages designed to make us feel other people’s feelings. Then we self-medicate to feel a different way. Then we’re told the way we’re feeling is wrong and next thing you know we’re given drugs to make us feel an entirely different way.

The Gorgeous Darkness comes out March 30 on Below System Records. Pre-order all of that dark gorgeousness here and buy “Numb” right now here.
