Driving with a creatively free structure and set-up, Liar kicks in without an intro, laying bare its hook and classic hip hop aura, before falling back to expose a more minimal and spacious verse section that effectively underlines the broader details of the scene. Introducing the artist TDX IV with a notably recognizable, cleanly recorded, and characterful vocal style, Liar aims high with confidence but keeps things simple style-wise and indeed with its brief two-minute lifespan.
TDX IV is a 21 years old rap artist from Phoenix, Arizona. He is a creative and sporty character. He played football, skateboard, and video games in his early days. But music was always his passion and destiny. He grew up listening to amazing music from artists like Chris Brown and Usher and later on Drake, Lil Wayne, and Future. TDX IV started making music as a hobby first but when music was all he had to help him to come through depression he started to take it seriously. He is an exceptional songwriter too. As a rapper, he has the ability to talk to our souls and he wants to help and motivate listeners through his music.
Throw in a second verse and voice for dynamic, and the resolve to that hook proves all the more memorable each time it reappears. The soundscape to impresses a little more notably as the track goes on – this haunting downpour of vocal fragments and melody works well, giving the release a definite level of identity that’s easy to pinpoint the second time around. The whole thing effectively walks the line between the contemporary sound and something a little more artistically unique. It will be interesting to hear where else the music takes TDX IV in the near future.
