Los An Jewels – Rainbows

Los An Jewels
Los An Jewels’ latest single “Rainbows” embraces summer with a hyper pop rap style which also includes some rock and reggae elements.
Usually, when I post a video on the site social accounts, it’s because I don’t plan to write an article about it. This time I’ll make an exception, since Los An Jewels‘ latest single has so much going on that I want to spend some words on it.

While their usual trap/hip-hop sound is still present especially in the beats, there are very summer-ish vibes coming from a couple of different styles: on one hand we have those electric guitars supporting the hook which remind me of late Nineties western pop/rock; but even more, there are some ska-reggae influences in verse adding a beach-like touch. It’s almost a different group from the one we know, if not for the almost too powerful kick drum, the autotuned vocals and the fairly simple melodies, which are all the reasons that make me enjoy Los An Jewels.

As you can see from the MV, the group is now a duo after Nullmayu House left; hopefully, the two remaining members Lie La Lie and Satis Faction will keep it going and maybe will find a new companion.


I admit that when I first heard about them I has some doubts since I’m not really a fan of trap music, but Los An Jewels are managing to make the style interesting adding various elements to it. And that’s why I need to remember that they are not merely a trap unit, but a hyper pop rap one, which is clearly what this song is made of.
