"[...] Koroma's studio projects are conceptually disciplined. On Osiris, his first EP of 2016, he pondered life in the digital age over synth-fueled production matching the 8-bit cover art. "We used to go on the internet," he declares on "Electronic," "now we're literally in the internet." For the upcoming It's Complicated, It's All Happening so Fast, Even Though I Can't Keep up With You, You'll Always Be My Sunshine, Koroma got together with EYRST producer Neill von Tally for a jam session that was then cut up and pieced together into songs. Like its predecessor, the new project is at once honest and deeply hallucinogenic. On "Complicated," Koroma describes the frustrations of the local rap grind in blunt detail against a disorienting whir of keyboards and static: "They see the moves, now they want to get involved/ Why you need a horoscope just to tell you who you are."
It's a project imbued with a sense of tension that, consciously or not, comes off as prescient of the current moment. But while Koroma admits that pushing a record feels weird right now, he has hope the future—for himself, the country and the world—is brighter than it seems." --- Matt Singer [Willamette Week]
