From fighting to finding yourself, by way of brilliantly unique, recognisably and fearlessly passionate vocals – Moromo details the pain of self-progression throughout a timeless yet refreshingly honest, beautifully poetic Ceasefire.
Produced by TryBishop, Ceasefire presents a fairly humble arrangement – a simple click for a rhythm, hints of piano and bass. For the most part our focus is on the movement and tone of the voice, this leading character who so unapologetically commits to the moment.
To read the lyrics on their own is notably less impactful than to read and listen to them in unison as the music and energy slowly but surely build and envelop you. The key is in the completed expression, this increasing power and presence and emotion that comes to engage and captivate in a simple yet striking way.
“I fought God, I fought my demons. I fought myself by getting between them.”
Naturally addictive, relatable, vague enough to be accessible and made your own yet still clearly personal to a bold and vulnerable degree – Ceasefire feels like an alternative hit to kick off the new year with contemplation and catchy melodic loops united.
“I found love on its last breath, But I found it nonetheless.”
