“Lens (ft. Travis Scott)” Track Review
Released April 23, 2017
Genre: Alternative RnB
Another piano-heavy tune from the camp of Frank Ocean graces our ears this week. It’s an intriguing ditty that has a Travis Scott feature that heavily influences the sonic soundscapes of this track. The quivering synths and heavy autotune are very Travis-specific. The autotune would normally bother me, but it makes sense in the context of this song which talks about fame. You could say the autotune represents how media sees famous people as objects and robots and not people, hence the autotune. Frank’s vocals are still impassioned despite all the effects. Enjoy!
