Genesis Owusu delivers the ultimate hump day treat – dropping a new deluxe album titled, ‘Missing Molars’

Genesis Missing Molars

If you're currently cooped up in Sydney lockdown; there's no doubt that you would be searching desperately for ways to keep yourself entertained. When you've done as much indoor exercise as one person can handle, and exhausted just about every sweet treat an amateur baker can possibly make; the next, most obvious choice is to turn your speaker to full blast and wash (dance) the day away. Without getting on your neighbours nerves, of course. As if predicting this is exactly what we would need in a time of crisis; – and RUSSH favourite, Genesis has blessed us with new music, courtesy of his surprise deluxe album, Missing Molars.

We know what you're thinking. It's barely been four months since Genesis dropped his highly-anticipated, 15-track masterpiece, Smiling With No Teeth. What could we have possibly done to deserve this?

But as the Aria-nominated artist proves time and time again, we should learn to always expect the unexpected. Missing Molars is a five-track deluxe accompaniment to his earlier studio album – an insight into the continuing fruition of songs that emerged from those same writing sessions.

Speaking on the release of Missing Molars, Genesis shared; "Missing Molars is an extension of Smiling With No Teeth. A small collection of tracks from the SWNT sessions that take the already established world-building groundwork of the album, and expand that universe into new and unexplored places. These are all tracks that I felt were special in their own right and needed to be shared. This is music without boundary."

One of the five tracks is the recently released single, Same Thing. The magnetic, electric release is filled with addictive bass flicks, wobbly synths and rich production; enhanced by Genesis' effervescent harmonies, affirming raps and a poetic cross. Other track titles include The Fall, What Do I Fear, Fallen Branches and Crosses.

As the epilogue to his debut LP, Missing Molars, reaffirms Genesis' soul-bearing narrative; an intuitively dissected and reassembled portrait of mental health, resilience and race as part of his burgeoning discography.

Missing Molars is available to stream now – so, let the neighbours know a Covid-safe dance party is imminent.
