Call Me Karizma and the razor sharp hooks of "Monster"

Monster by Call Me Karizma has delicious rough edges within the slippery smooth production. A blend of hip hop and punk tinged pop rock it's hooks are cool and smart. Minneapolis based artist - singer songwriter Riz created most of the 3 part "The Gloomy Tapes" in his basement studio further collaborating with Robbie Soukiasyan (XXXTentacion) and David Pramik (X Ambassadors, LANY). Rooted in both hip-hop and punk.  The Gloomy Tapes is thematically and artistically multi-layered. As I listened to Monster I thought of Twenty One Pilots and had some flashes of Eminem as well. 

Monster is the single from the forthcoming EP- "The Gloomy Tapes Vol. 2". The debut single Serotonin broke the Top 20 on Spotify's New Music Friday playlist, Apple Music's Best of the Week, Top 5 on Spotify Playlist's The Scene and New Noise, and was #1 Breaking Pop on Apple Music.

The Official video for Monster (below) is shot in a more professional manner than most of the lesser known movies on NetFlix.
