LUI HILL – 5000 Miles
Picture by Jaro Suffner
5000 Miles is a new song by LUI HILL, is quintessential rBeatzRadio. He’s a world traveler, and his music is an expression of the journeys that he embarked on with his father in his teenage years. 5000 Miles give me a vibe similar to Allan Rayman, with unique yet deeply emotional vocals. The verses are guided by LUI’s vocals and lo-fi arrangements that give the entire composition an ethereal vibe.
LUI HILL has a super soulful voice, giving listeners an authentic feel. No deception, only truth in heartache. It’s hard to classify the genre because there are so many different influences. At times I’d call this future R&B; however, there are elements of indie, pop, soul, and hip-hop. The song almost sounds like a dream scenario, blurring the lines of imagination and reality. There is certainly an escapist sentiment to this piece with a closing that leaves the listener wondering where LUI HILL has ended up.
