The singles showcase the rapper’s musical flexibility: ‘Parenthesis’ takes fans on an atmospheric R&B ride never heard before in VannDa’s music with the help of backing vocals from the likes of Sophia Kao, Laura Mam and Nick Dot.
‘Life Is A Game’, however, sees VannDa return to his rap roots on a self-produced track filled with glitchy bloops and traditional instrumentation.
