“CYP” offers a fresh perspective to the UK Hiphop music scene and a visceral audiovisual introductory experience to the world of Tommy Saint. The production of the song is based in dark trap, carrying with it an energetic bounce. The vocals offer unique rhythm and an infectious chorus that captivates. The lyrics were written as a way of silencing the petty noise with which we are often surrounded - it announces Saint’s feelings of freedom and makes it clear that he is not a character to be boxed. The cinematic experience that accompanies the track is made in collaboration with director Ilan Lampl, who brought flair and style to the production of the video. The track centres itself around the ability to do whatever one wants, pure freedom and a perfect message to begin the music collection of Tommy Saint.
