THEM is a new exciting queer rap duo consisting of Figaro the Kid from Columbia, SC and TCHNCLR from Atlanta, GA, which have decided to join forces about a year ago. In July the duo has released its first mixtape, which combines boncy beats with nervous ravey synths, followed by a Remix EP released a few weeks ago (cover on top), featuring a bunch of other promising new artists like Virginia rapper Prince Airick, North Carolinian Pariah Carey, Cakes da Killa beatmaker VIACOM CANNON and Bangkok based artist TrinityTiny1. For Catch Fire the duo has prepared another (very entertaining) commented list of their 5 favorite web clips, which allows to trace back a couple of THEM’s musical roots.
“Cibo Matto is everything. They’re one of my favorite bands of all time and one of the biggest inspirations to me. I’m constantly crying because I will probably never get to see them play live (they didn’t come even remotely near me for their reunion tour). Maybe if I bother them enough on twitter enough they’ll make music with us.” (Figaro)
