WIEUCA x JAVAE – Human Shield @wieucaLLC

Published

on

“Human Shield” is a collaboration between experimental pop group WIEUCA of Athens, GA and Brooklyn rapper JAVAE. Alongside dub saxophones and buzzing synths, the track explores why it can be easier to put on a fake happy face rather than express yourself. Pairing intensely psychedelic sounds and visuals, “Human Shield” embodies a vivid crossover between rap and indie pop, which not enough people have pulled off up to this point.

Wieuca: At its core, Wieuca is a fusion act. Having dabbled in aesthetics ranging from garage punk to triphop to folk, the group has always managed to bridge stylistic variations with a continuity in confessional lyrics, homespun recordings, and psychedelic sensory-overload. With a colorful visual identity to match, Wieuca’s focus has remained pointing out the beauty in the hideous and vice versa since its 2012 inception in Athens, GA. “Human Shield” highlights this seamless, if unexpected, fusion of sounds by enlisting Brooklyn rapper JAVAE to bring the vibe into a new hemisphere. There’s no reason why indie bands and rappers shouldn’t combine forces, but at least for now, this cut stands out as one of the very few examples.

Wieuca has continued its genre-fusing experimentation into 2018 with the releases of the glitched out Local Celebrity EP that dropped in February, the psychedelic post-punk “Stress Box” in August, and now “6Ft Ceiling” which is the sonic equivalent of Juuling to death.

JAVAE: Living a nomadic lifestyle for the last couple years, JAVAE is an independent hip hop artist born in Opelika, Alabama and now residing in Brooklyn. While trying to crawl out of the rabbit hole of his own doubts, JAVAE pours his thoughts over an array of lo-fi, soulful beats. Raising awareness to the politically corrupt state of the world is something he finds important to speak on as a renegade in his community. Inspired by the legends of Southern hip hop, JAVAE’s style manages to be unapologetic yet remorseful, humble yet arrogant, and romantic yet selfish all in the pursuit of feeding the mind and finding inner peace.

Pudge Capone’s musical journey is certainly a lesson in perseverance and resiliency. At one point, the Lebanon, Pennsylvania native was sitting behind bars, contemplating whether he was wasting his talent. That moment of clarity led to him honing his craft and focusing all of his energy on launching his career upon release. For nearly 4 years since he has been a full-time artist, Pudge Capone has collaborated with the likes of Fatboy SSE and amassed well over 100K streams on Apple Music alone. This is all the more remarkable considering his limited number of musical releases. Often splitting his time between Pennsylvania and New York City, Washington Heights specifically, Pudge has built a strong network of creatives to collaborate with from both states that help bring his art to life.

Now ready to take the leap and take his career to greater heights, Pudge Capone has unveiled his first official project in the form of the 4-track EP, “Blood, Sweat & Tears.” The project finds Pudge sharing his journey with raw emotion that resonates with listeners. He also released the first official visual from the project with the TH Media-directed clip for Keep Fighting. Pudge expounds on not getting the recognition he deserves on the song and persevering nonetheless. Watch the video here, follow him on Instagram at @PudgeCapone and be sure to stream the EP Blood, Sweat & Tears currently available on all digital streaming platforms.
