Daily Yinz – The Hazel Effect – White Gold Trim

The Hazel Effect is a Pittsburgh-based solo project that blends trap’s rattling low end with pop-punk’s scorched-earth angst.

“White Gold Trim,” a single that The Hazel Effect dropped a few weeks back, is a worthy entry in a doleful cannon known for zonked-out, digitized melodrama expressed by various dudes named Lil (Peep, Uzi Vert, Lotus), along with Juice WRLD and Trippie Redd. Hazel elevates a soured relationship to epic proportions, centering on the image of a “blacked out Benz with the white gold trim” as he simultaneously mourns and taunts an ex. A text message becomes a knife in the back, a Cali-plated whip becomes a chariot of pain, a broken heart becomes an overwhelming intoxicant. It’s maximalist fun with a cutting edge.
