JPEGMAFIA Surfaces With “The Bends”
JPEGMAFIA remains unapologetically himself in his vibey and experimental new track “The Bends.”
JPEG is perfectly equipped to handle a beat of this nature, his easy-going flow sliding over the synthesizers. As his lyrics resonate, his vocals seeped with processed effects, we’re left to be guided as he sees fit. Expect plenty of non-sequiturs, though there’s certainly enough of a thematic throughline here for those willing to pay attention. Longtime fans will likely get a kick out of “The Bends,” and those still looking to see what the enigmatic JPEGMAFIA is all about should consider checking this one out as well. Where do you stand — are you on board with the movement?
