Myths, Flow, and Wishbone
Composed of Kate Tempest, Archie Marsh, and Ferry Lawrenson, Sound of Rum is a alternative hip hop group based out of the U.K identifiable by their distinctive flow and simple backing guitar and drum riffs. "Icarus" takes on the task of keeping up the transmission of the classic myth of Icarus who flew to close to the sun. I distinctly remember Icarus more than anything other myth I learned in my childhood thanks in large part to PBS's Wishbone. Fond memories. Kate Tempest has quite the talent for the spoken word and her lyrics continue to put her American counterparts like lil' Weezy to shame. Check Balance out.
