When Ceiling Demons dropped this tasty bit of hip hop we were left salivating for days like a slobbering Doberman.
Ceiling Demons are an alternative hip hop group from North Yorkshire and are made up of identical twin brother MCs Psy Ceiling and Dan Demon along with production from Beat Demon.
Their debut album Dual Sides was self-released right at the end of 2013 and is a powerful, moving listen. If you haven’t heard it already then right that wrong at your earliest convenience.
‘Even If’ eases in with swirling vocal samples ‘I’ll still love you / Even if / I don’t see you again’ before the beat kicks in and Psy Ceiling and Dan Demon stomp about the track. The production is crisp, the lyrical content sharp and considered, and the narrative flows alongside the ebbing nature of the track.
The single is backed up by two B-side tracks ‘Feels Like Forever’ and ‘The Quiet’, both of which serve to illustrate Ceiling Demons songwriting capabilities.
And they’ve got plenty of backers, too. The trio have received plaudits from Louder Than War (“A breath of fresh air”), Tom Robinson (“Amazingly powerful and heartfelt”), Scroobius Pip, Jericho Keys and even Arrested Development (“It’s great to hear hip hop with sincerity again”).
Refined songwriters, we’re hoping Ceiling Demons are as moving live as they are on record.
To surmise, ‘Even If’ is a belting hip hop track. Get in the know.
