Listen to Tbish’s new track ‘Trenches’, a song celebrating one of music’s most unique sub-genres

Words by Tom Parker

Tbish is making a serious name for himself.

If you’re not familiar with Tbish, then it’s time to get acquainted. The Brisbane-based talent just dropped his new single, ‘Trenches’, a track that follows on from a series of singles that have earned him some serious attention around the traps.

A career still burgeoning, Tbish has already gained label support and collaborated with some rising emcees including the likes of Goosey, Big Skeez and Brisbane R&B talent Jamie-Rose. His music isn’t motivated by money rather Tbish is in it for thrill and opportunity to meet people and create connections.

Tbish writes drill music, a slant of rap stemming from Chicago that draws references from the crime that has riddled the city in the past. ‘Trenches’ is bass-heavy and ominous – as Tbish raps his way through the track, the beats carved out by UK producer Ghosty remain constant to clear the runway for the profound narratives running over the top.

Tbish talks of rivalries and interactions; of battles he constantly faces in a world that hasn’t always been easy for him.

With some big talents rising out of Brisbane and Tbish well and truly part of that brigade, it will be interesting where his momentum takes him. An international collaborator already in the bag, things are certainly on the way up for Tbish.
