Robokid and phem have released a collaboration; one-two punch that is an emotional roller-coaster. Released on Moving Castle, “Judge Me” and “I Miss U,” just their names alone have already set the tone of how two-sided these tracks are to each other. Having diverse sounding tracks allowed both Robokid and phem to show their craftsmanship and versatility when it came to production and lyricism.
“Judge Me” sets a tone that rings a sense of independence. You can hear in phem’s lyrics the idea of not stressing about other people and being able to do what you want when you want. Robokid’s production for this track can be described as dark, gloomy, yet empowering for those who worry too much about others and forget to think about themselves.
Taking a complete 180, “I Miss U” will have you in all kinds of feels. The lyrics of phem truly will keep you thinking about how much you truly miss that special someone who was in your life. She truly showed her stellar vocal range from those indie style verses to her higher pitched choruses. Production by Robokid on this track resurrects memories of a special someone in your life and being crushed by tsunamis of emotion filled with happiness, sadness, and everything in between.
