TCU Keem leads with a firm grasp of the value of hard effort and perseverance and natural talent, and passion for the process. This is the path to success, and “Progress” addresses it directly, amongst a slightly distinctive beat and rapidly compelling vocals.
The single’s classic and uncomplicated artwork appears to be unexpectedly well-suited to many of the effects and moments included within. More than that, while “Progress” opens with a delicate blend of delicacy and current hip hop hooks, the track develops to present a unique structure and a succession of moments that enthrall far more effectively than initially anticipated.
“Progress” is a strong tune. The soundscape is excellent – there’s certain originality to the discordant nature of the riff, and the apparent quality of the production means that when you listen loud, the whole thing generates immersive mayhem – and that’s without the use of a powerful beat. It’s fascinating to listen to this, and the entire thing has weight and strength to it.
TCU Keem’s surprising wordplay and expressive, theatrical vocal style are exercised in a consistently engaging manner by “Progress.” Fragments of dark and intriguing concepts, paired with short lines and rapid rhymes, make this one you’ll need to hear more than once to connect with properly.
All of this works together to propel TCU Keem to new heights, and while “Progress” is far from his first single, it is unquestionably a significant stride forward in an exciting direction. The likelihood is that you will have much more to look forward to in the future.
