City Eclipse - Never - Stereo Stickman

City Eclipse Never


City Eclipse lead with deeply personal, diary-like lyrics on this open declaration of turmoil and uncertainty.

Pairing layers of vocals alongside a mellow rhythm and an electronically charged soundscape, Never tells its story by means of a series of freestyle-like vocals. From simple melodies to classic raps, there’s an uninhibited and almost unedited feel to the way the lyrics pour through – giving the song a sense of realness, a sort of lost-in-the-moment level of vulnerability that’s easy to connect to.

As the track goes on, the switch from melody to rap is met by that from spacious ambience to the more distorted, fuzz-kissed arena of intensity. There’s also the contrast between vocals for further dynamic. Ultimately though, the gradually descending hook melody is the most recognisable quality – making sure the song has a grunge-like chorus that’s subtly memorable yet still in tune with the natural angst and grit of the writing.
