PENPALS – “Trip to Peru” (prod. by Lars Viola)

PENPALS – “Trip to Peru” (prod. by Lars Viola)



After building a steady buzz over the past few years, Brooklyn trio PENPALS reveal one of their strongest tracks to date with their new single, “Trip to Peru,” featuring dusty production by Lars Viola.

For those unfamiliar, the PENPALS are rappers Cynic the Apache and Rapswell, with producer Squires behind the boards. And to date, they’ve made waves in the NYC underground and elsewhere with several ill projects, like their 2015 self-titled debut, which was followed-up the following year with, Made for the Underground, produced entirely by Jazz Spastiks (a/ka/ The Slipmat Brothers). With “Trip to Peru,” the group sounds more focused than ever over Viola’s jazzy, piano-heavy instrumental.

In addition to delivering sharp and clever wordplay throughout the track’s verses, Cynic and Swell wisely bring their humor to the chorus as well. Their Wheel Of Fortune-referencing lyrics are as absurd as they are catchy, to the point you’re likely to have “We got it down pat/ Sajak” for the next week (or more).

Give the track a spin, and head over to the digital retailer or streaming platform of your choice to support!
