Fast Poems

by MC Dara Z



"Words escape when a cigarette will do," raps MC Dara Z, "but I keep my pen near, if it will prove useful." Dara's pen does indeed prove useful on "Fast Poems," her new EP for Growroom Productions. Across four tracks that surge with throwback, hip-hop beats, Dara unspools confessional lyrics with a laid-back, jazzy flow, her syllables and similes tumbling forth. The self-described "D.C.'s daughter" tackles lust and love on "Fireball," pens a tribute to Boundary Stone on "Ode to a Bar," holds onto a broken relationship on "Superhero Love," and explores a "nicotine haze for daze" on the glitched-out and glimmering "Lone Wolf Woman."
