Last month, Kevin Abstract released his sophomore album American Boyfriend: A Suburban Love Story, but he’s ending off the year with one more gem. “Kin” is the latest track from the versatile rapper, and finds him using his voice in a variety of ways over some warm, Pharrell-esque keys. Starting things off with a sticky hook, Kevin’s delivery get’s weirder and harder to classify as he experiments on his verses. In an interview ith Fader, he listed influences as “Goo Goo Dolls, Sunny Day Real Estate, Vanessa Carlton—stuff you would hear in a Chili’s.” While we wouldn’t say we hear any of those direct influences on Kevin’s latest track, his broad taste is definitely present in the way he writes.
