If you're looking for music that's impossible to label, then the new Yaeji release is a must-experience.

The Korean-American electronic music producer and DJ gained popularity in the underground electronic music scene in the late 2010s because of her unique blend of dance music and hip-hop influences. That and her mixed usage of both English and Korean lyrics in her songs. She's masterfully playing with genres and that's even more evident in the new single which starts very minimalistic and eventually belts into an upbeat alternative dance / drum&bass blend.

"For Granted" is the lead single off her forthcoming debut album, With A Hammer, scheduled for release via XL Recordings in April If you listen closely to the lyrics, she reveals vulnerability and introspection, which seems to reflect the artist's rapid rise in the industry.

When I think about it
I don't even know
How it got to be this way
How it got to be so good
How it got to be -
