There are certain sections of the internet that feel legitimately dangerous to surf, and that’s an impressive accomplishment in 2016. Tumblrs that are essentially moodboards filled with nudes, pictures of knives, and blood-soaked Nike clothing can feel wrong to look at, but there’s something inherently fascinating about it, too. 19-year-old rapper Syringe is one of the first artists to successfully translate that feeling to music in a post-Geocities world.
From Sheboygan, Wisconsin, Syringe fills his social media accounts with pictures of his fist covered in cum and selfies sporting black lipstick and wearing high-heels. His scruffy appearance translates over to his music, with a variety of sounds sitting somewhere between Skinny Puppy’s most austere output and Future’s more melodic moments, albeit delivered in a more reckless and unsettlingly strange way.
