A five-member hip-hop family from Winnipeg, Canada, The Lytics embrace relatable and positive messages in their music, citing influences like Mos Def and A Tribe Called Quest. The group, consisting of three brothers, one cousin, and one “adopted” brother, have been garnering accolades and attention since 2010, incorporating everything from Afrobeat to funk and R&B into their sound to flesh out beyond traditional hip hop.
Their latest single, “Glow”, opens with smooth, jazzy vocals before breaking into uplifting lyrical athletics, covering areas from walking in other people’s shoes to sacrificing for your dreams. It’s a powerful tune that will grow on you as you take in the lyrics and soul of the tune on repeat listens.
