Visual, they deliver on their name. As to subliminals, it’s all in their music.
It’s hard to appreciate a stable in the rap game nowadays but with Sounds of the Coast, it is good to see SV work on the strength of the members and thus Control Magazine presents to you: Review of the Visuals.
Duh Bick, Pray September, and Quan collectively known as the group Subliminal Visuals come together to deliver their Sounds of the Coast mixtape. These gents hail from KZN, the Eastern Cape, and the Western Cape which we can safely assume to be the coastal sounds that we are being blessed with. Now, for a team to slap ‘coastal’ on their project, raises the challenge for their to be heavy flow. And the flow is their; it’s a wavey in most cases and sometimes it gets lost at sea.
The collective has lofty ambitions and they put in the work. Our qualm is that we feel that at most times, especially in this project, we are not introduced to the collective but three mates who are trying to push each other and their work under the moniker of a collective. They are very good, each with his own strength, but to sail as a team, more can be done.
