Having already found himself on numerous Spotify playlists over the last few months, emerging rapper and MC YUCIFER is now looking to bring back more of that bold and passionate sound with his pulsing new offering ‘Staring At The Ceiling’.

Looking to highlight the loneliness and uncertainty we all deal with from time to time, his newest jam creates a captivating and engaging aesthetic that shows us that while things may not be quite right at the moment, they will inevitably get better.

The song verbalises a time period of emotional emptiness and confusion with regards to life and the direction I wanted to take for myself at that point in time. I don’t ask the listener to provide an answer but present the questions and invite them to ‘get closer, feel’ what I am feeling. I feel that in relating to what others feel, we can also learn more about ourselves, and so everyone should try to be a bit more empathic, a bit better listener… things like that.
