Who? Zach de la Rocha
What’s the story? It must feel like Christmas for Rage Against The Machine fans right now. Hot on the heels of three-quarters of the band getting their groove on again with Prophets of Rage, now singer Zach de la Rocha has released his hugely long-awaited debut single proper in the form of Digging For Windows. A de la Rocha solo album has been in the works ever since Rage first split back in 2000 with only a few guest appearances and the One Day as a Lion EP in 2008 actually emerging. But finally, here we are, and the track sees him work with Run The Jewels' El-P once again, after featuring on their 2014 track Close Your Eyes (And Count to Fuck), Naturally, given that act's stellar output, the results are excellent, with a dark, dense beat - reminscent of a slightly tougher Massive Attack - providing the backdrop for de la Rocha's familiarly angry vocals. Please, can we finally have an album Zach? Cheers.
For fans of: Massive Attack
In three words: Long-awaited rap release
