The tone of Brockhampton's 2021 release Roadrunner: New Light, New Machine reflects the highs and lows of the period from which it was born – both tragic and celebratory, built around the recurring theme of finding "the light" in your life. As such, Roadrunner: New Light, New Machine is equal parts braggadocio and empathy – the once young, wide-eyed boyband returns more self-aware and self-assured than ever before.
The creative process also found Brockhampton opening its doors to a wider group of collaborators for the first time. First track, "BUZZCUT," features a show-stopping Danny Brown verse as well as vocals from in-house producer Jabari Manwa, who stepped out as a vocalist and performer in 2021. The Brockhampton that emerged here is one working at the height of their powers and marks an important inflection point in the band's career.
