“Indie Pop Type Beat,” is the latest work from solo hip-hop artist Billy Marchiafava. The name of the track is an obvious play on the genre of indie hip hop, but then comes through with actual verses that deliver a good message. The funny is there just as much as the swagger. Showcasing live drums and strummed guitar in the instrumental, the eased topline Billy provides hits the spot with it’s blend of melody and rhythm.
Billy Marchiafava is representation of a new type of musician. One who is incredibly merged with online culture where the line between the human and the cultural reference built in are merged. On a brand level, he embraces the meme community, but on a music level he hits hard with on-point bars, beats that resonate, and a steady presence. The combination is absolutely working for him, Billy Marchiafava boasting millions of plays per track and over a million monthly listeners. He’s clever, cunning, and clearly has a passion for what he does.
