Bakar

Listen

After self-releasing his debut mixtape, Badkid, last year, Bakar has impressed audiences with his fervent, genre-bending sound. Bakar draws on the attitude of punk, utilizes a poetic, hip-hop vocal delivery and takes cues from the diverse sonics of alternative hip-hop, soul, indie rock and spoken-word. He initially made a name for himself on SoundCloud—recording his vocals over guitar riffs from acts like King Krule and Bombay Bicycle Club. On songs like “BADlands,” his style morphs mid-song from guitar-backed rap to neo-soul, and no matter where he finds himself on the stylistic map, he possesses an innate swagger, magnetic presence and perceived effortlessness.
