Phoenix Hip-Hop Duo The New F.O.'s Nab Licensing Deal with MTV Networks' Hype Music
According to its own polished hype, the aptly named Hype Music is "a remarkable talent-incubating, hybrid, music licensing company fueled by some of the world's hottest, emerging, independent artists."
The rest of the songs onReal. Life. Feel. Good.
are a mixed bag. The synth-driven "The Wall" adopts the vocal harmony stylings of Andre 3000 and Big Boi on the hook, with the positive vibe lyrics,"Let's bring the walls down/Let's sing a song about it." There's not much to the song instrumentally, but it does have a catchy beat and a big sonic smiley face. "Feel Good" opens with jangly guitar and organs, then explodes into a wannabe club-banger driven by a steadily strumming six-string. The strongest parts of the song are Pancho's soulful vocals, and the full, organic band behind him, a la The Roots.
