Enock Addison encourages those with faith to offer a little more praise for their Lord in every day life – not purely when you need something. The song’s concept comes through by means of a uniquely colourful pop soundtrack and a string of lyrics that remind you of the beautiful things in life.
The music features various electronic elements that swoop in and out of the mix. The overall vibe is upbeat, the drum-line is energetic yet fairly vintage sounding – there’s a reasonably raw nature to much of the single, adding a little authenticity in some respects. Addison’s voice at the forefront of the experience offers an easily memorable melody line and one that develops and evolves quite consistently throughout the single.
There’s a familiarity to the verse-lines in some ways, but in others the artist’s long-form lyrical set-up is refreshing and showcases a deeper connection to the music and the art of poetic writing. The optimistic and joyful vibe of the music and indeed of the tone of the voice leading the journey represent well an inherent belief in what’s being presented. At the same time, they help reinforce the joy that can come from a life lived with appreciation and gratitude – one in constant awareness of your faith and what you believe to have led you to this point.
The feeling the music offers underlines the central sentiments well, and with today being Thanksgiving – there’s no better time to express your gratitude and give thanks without expecting anything in return. Addison has scheduled this release to remind listeners and those who follow a religion to reach out and connect without exception and without wanting something back. The idea is clear, and the song is a colourful reminder of the possibilities and the beautiful things that have been gifted throughout time.
