A compelling video strengthens the cause & makes this an easy piece to re-visit. A mighty release that ticks more than a few boxes thanks to its skillful combination of relevant truths & entrancing visuals.
The UK’s capital doesn’t get too many references these days, Iamkingziion’s here to change that though. London Times is a piece that exclusively expresses the artist’s love for the city that bred him.
The ears are swept away on clouds of thought-provoking lyrics while the beat demands bodily movement. The words pair diametrical images of nature, displaying the grandiose & objective circle of life.
So much more than a song. It’s an atmosphere, a dream inside someone else’s mind – the results of a well-learned, meticulous musician bent on showing you music that will actually take you somewhere.
The most suffocating thing you can do as an artist & indeed as a person it to limit yourself to one way of doing things
Lavender Hills have perfectly captured that sense of frustration & anger in a way that causes anyone who may hear them to stand up & take notice; that’s what a rock & roll band is about.
It feels like a song for you – the words, the rhythm – it drives with the absolute energy & brightness, the positivity, designed to fit in with the feelings so many will be experiencing right now.
You don’t get too many rock songs or songs from any genre these days that take something so interesting & unexpected & re-imagine it in a new form.
The industry is right behind those acts that dress in dungarees with moustaches howling down the mic, which is great but I feel like we’re not introducing anything new. Time for a greek guitar slinger to stand & sing about KFC & Uber, don’t ya think 😉
There’s something incredibly cool about the composition & the performance. By the end of the experience, this arrangement of notes, this overall progression through the riffs & sections of the song, makes certain to linger in your mind for quite some time.
What stands the tallest about this version of Where Is My Mind is Costi’s rap verse, particularly that opening set of bars – it comes so unexpectedly & proceeds to effortlessly pour these fresh ideas & rhymes out to you in a calm yet confident way.
Where to start? This song has all the aspects of something you’d blast in your car for hours. Dense story-telling, intense instrumentation, a catchy hook. When the vocalist is not performing, the music never sounds empty or deserted. A lot of releases don’t have that benefit.
