Prettyboy D-O Is As Cryptic And Crude As Ever On ‘Living In Bondage’

Posted on

Among other things that highlight his uniqueness, Prettyboy D-O’s dramatic flair is top on his list of the glitz and glamour of his artistry, despite its roots in goth and ghoul. In the first quarter of the year, he bemoaned the disadvantages of entanglements in his usual outlandish but engaging way on the Higo produced Police N Teef, a bass-driven preface of his third body of work, Love Is War. He continues down the line this month with Living In Bondage, an 808s powered ode to his come-up, which finds him stewing in the chaos that riddled his beginnings.

Trill XO and Tochi Bedford’s echoing synths serve as the perfect backdrop to D-O’s emotive rant that starts with an allusion to his family life and how this has influenced his trajectory before he launches into perfectly aligned quips on various elements in his environment and his response to them.

Prettyboy D-O might be an enigma with narratives just as cryptic as his persona, but he never misses with a straightforward declaration of his intentions, and the eponymously titled Living In Bondage, is an encapsulation of this phenomenon.
