GAUZE BANDAGES IS A RARE GEM
Native Face (Native Sun and Cinoface) is an MC/Producer duo that proudly represents Hampton Roads’ prolific underground Hip Hop community. Their debut LP, “Native Faces” is a vivid reflection of the Tidewater Region; an area surrounded by beaches and military installations. This stark contrast influences a sound that is both rugged and beautiful.
Cinoface’s production has an ambient, ethereal quality that manages to capture the essence of boom bap, as well as stretch the boundaries of tradition. Native Sun provides a polished, versatile delivery which allows him to display his lyrical complexity without losing his grasp of the moment.
“Gauze Bandages” is the debut video release from the Native Faces LP.
The song features nostalgic, raw lyrics over smooth- but still aggressive instrumentation. Native Sun uses braggadocious content with an in your face rhyme style. While Cinoface’s beat sounds like what he describes as “beautiful chaos”. Visually, this video features a gritty film style, with a minty, shadowy color palette – giving off a calm yet ominous vibe. Gauze Bandages is fun, refreshing and extremely Hip Hop.
