We're Ok - EP

Lyan Paris aren’t the most obvious candidates for Toronto rap stardom—coming from a city synonymous with wealth-flaunting, self-mythologizing MCs, Ryan Goulding and Luke Marshall look more like college kids in search of a kegger. But it’s not just their appearance that sets Lyan Paris apart from Toronto’s hip-hop cognoscenti: On their EP We’re Ok, the duo draw as much from the post-emo aesthetic of Lil Peep and the post-genre pop of Post Malone as the after-hours introspection of Drake. The opening title track instantly establishes the singular sweet/sour dynamic between Goulding’s gilded hooks and Marshall’s rugged flows, while “Problems” demonstrates how Lyan Paris’ melodic sensibility can brighten up even the most bitter breakup song. And on “No Hesitation,” they invite fellow Toronto rapper Anders to join them for a trap-tinged kiss-off to duplicitous lovers that could nonetheless double as the hip-grinding soundtrack to your next party hookup.
