The lead single off of Cheat Codes’ new album “Hellraisers Pt 1”, “Lean On Me” offers pleasantly percussive elements, creating an emotional, larger than life sound that lifts the mood from the very start. The groups versatile skills shine through Trevor and Tinashe’s soaring vocals and relatable lyrics throughout. The dance-influenced sound offers a sense of musical escapism that everyone needs right now. “Lean On Me” is a good vibe from beginning to end; as a key component to their three-part album “Hellraisers”, the standout track leads the pack with a sound that offers wide appeal.
The name of the album, “Hellraisers,” was the nickname given to the group by their late manager, Michael Theanne, who passed away just over a year ago, describing their playful and adventurous lifestyle. The album itself has three parts – each part has a distinct sound influenced by each member. This first part is focused on Trevor’s pop-leaning sound, while the second part will be focused on KEVI’s hip-hop flavor, and the third part will be focused on Matthew’s dance-influenced sound.
The multi-platinum group unites with a variety of artists for the album, and this collab with Tinashe is certainly a smash hit.
