Review: Billy Got Waves – Poison

New track ‘Poison’ from Edinburgh’s Billy Got Waves is the 1st track from the Rocket Boy project (of which we know very little except its existence).

Produced by Glasgow’s S-Type and Nottingham beatmaker Baygee, ‘Poison’ immediately attacks with an acidic synth melody. Billy’s vocals arrive upon a high-hat laced, trappy drum track, reflecting on years of partying and ‘taking it too far’.

Retrospective and light-hearted, this is a track that a lot of young people will relate to, with youth drug and alcohol use skyrocketing over the pandemic. If you like head-on, honest lyricism with a hypnotic trap beat, this is for you. 

‘Poison’ was released on 21st January 2022
