“Anything Except For Me” is a recent track from Midwestern alternative rapper Karras, produced by Bice. Confident vocals mesh with a funky bass line and blaring brass, deftly navigating through lyrical self-acceptance and Twin Peaks references. The “I could never be,” hook plays entrancingly, the brass presence remaining consistent as the vocals maintain an excited flow. The fervent vocal presence and brass-forward production make for an engaging sound throughout.
From Karras: “‘Anything Except For Me’ focuses on the fact that no matter how hard you may try to be something other than you, in the end, you will always become the unique and unrepeatable slice of the universe that you are. Might as well embrace it and shine on, crazy diamond.”
“Anything Except For Me” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of May 2021’ Spotify playlist.
The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Emerging Hip-Hop.
