It's a phenomenal straight off the bat...

LA risers Paris Texas have caused a sensation with their debut single 'Heavy Metal'.

Out now, it's a crunching, addictive piece of music, transplanting their deep hip-hop roots into a strange and exhilarating new world of their own devising.

Hugely original, there's a punk-like willingness to subvert the rules that puts us in mind of those early Odd Future tapes.

Spitting hard, 'Heavy Metal' is a brutal opening, with Paris Texas (South Central pairing Louie Pastel and Felix) refusing to relent on a hugely original opening statement.

ILLIMITEWORLD steers the macabre new video, a colossal life off point for a bold and decisive new aesthetic.
