Melbourne rapper HVNCOQ has returned with a new single. Following up on last year’s excellent “Blackout” (which we heralded as “the exact kind of nuanced and balanced commentary on race-relations we’ll need in 2018”), the rising MC is back with “Unusual.” Stream its premiere below via SoundCloud.

Where “Blackout” was overtly political, “Unusual” is a significantly more mellow affair, finding HVNCOQ in a laid back, meditative mood. It is set to appear on his forthcoming self-titled debut EP, due out next week.

Let us know what you think of HVNCOQ’s latest in the comments below.
