The acoustic guitar-driven melody creates a certain tranquility juxtaposed to the threatening line – she disobeyed, now the beast will rise. The lyrics invite curiosity, creating a dark mystery surrounding the characters & the outcome of this rising beast; seemingly the husband.
Go for it!!! We only live once & dreams are meant to be chased in this life. Believe in what you do & others will have no choice but to believe as well.
It’s always commendable when artists put in the consistent effort & attentiveness to complete a full length project like this. There’s so much more to relate to & to get lost within on an album, as opposed to a shorter EP or single.
The more you listen, the more the lifestyle starts to call. The entire Noirboy collection invites you to willingly tumble down precisely this kind of rabbit hole.
A great introduction to his sound. Ace Maddog has stated that his injuries sustained from a gun shot, as detailed in the song, have driven him to work even harder for his art – meaning there’s a lot more to come.
The music, the chords & notes chosen to create it, have a mildly melancholic yet seductive sense of care-free progression about them. The observational lyrics & the music work beautifully in unison to allow you to be completely swept away by the song.
Rather than appearing as a simple performance over a beat, there’s a subtle feeling of these two aspects working in unison, so you get a confident & smooth vibe from it all. Dexxin does what he does & makes certain you hear it.
When I was writing the song, I was wishing so desperately that I could change the way my mind worked. I feel so often in my life that my thoughts are miles ahead of my actions & I’m just dazed in a mess of overthinking. That’s why I wanted to slow down.
It feels like a familiar or recognisable, quirky pop-dance track, perhaps one from a slightly simpler time. There’s a touch of Daft Punk to the style of the progression & to that generally retro mood & vocal sound.
Aurora has an addictively peaceful & inspiring ‘aura’ about it (for lack of a more relevant word). It’s consistently interesting, and it lets your mind wander so far from your current reality.
A nine-track exploration of indie-alt-pop fusion – an album that offers subtlety & chaos in unison, showcasing the band’s creative identity as colourful & free.
Craymo is an artist embracing honesty to the fullest with his music. The term artist is important, his music is eclectic & forever evolving, his passion & connection to the process is consistently clear.
