According to indie rap duo PuffHost, their new track “Low Power Mode” is about “feeling inadequate in a world toxic comparison. We have a habit of creating highlight reels out of our lives and it becomes exhausting trying to live up to those unrealistic expectations of perfection“.
The duo go on to add that “Low Power Mode” addresses the mundanity and struggle of going through the motions and how we mask our true selves just to feel like we’re enough. The song also comes with a powerful visual accompaniment in collaboration with director Ishan Shukla – adapting his award winning animated short film Schirkoa to the music video.
PuffHost are two 90’s kids struggling with their millennialism, and with their music, their goal is to take a light hearted approach to serious topics, the result of which, is a beat driven, lyrical word play that never misses a chance for a catchy hook.
While Indie Hip-Hop might best put them in a tidy ‘box’, their musical prowess extends far beyond just being two emcees. Their songwriting blends the familiarity of pop music and anthemic hits while not compromising or pandering to a lesser product.
