The second time you hear that hook it seals the deal, becoming that anthem, that melodic peak that expresses the frustration & fear otherwise ignored.
An incredibly talented songwriter donating EP proceeds this October to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital to help others suffering with childhood cancer.
A go-to modern rock song. The sound is infectious & compelling, but there’s also plenty of individuality & even poetic reflections on life.
What I experienced in early life & up until now does put things in perspective. I use these experiences to write the most passionate & powerful music I can.
The creative progression throughout is fantastic, the brightness of the music contrasts cleverly with the mellow & somewhat melancholy vocal performance.
It’s a beautiful song, a little retro, rhythmic, hopeful, enjoyable in itself, but also – it’s inspiring, when you really break it down & pay attention.
The sound is big, leaning partly towards the distorted world of indie rock, partly towards a more electronic, even reggae influenced edge.
The leading riff & melody are the sort that have you hanging on for dear life yet listening back at every opportunity. Strangely familiar & thrilling.
