This is something really special, particularly for hip hop or conscious rap fans. The music has the delicacy of carefully crafted, creative trip-hop, and Bluff as a performer & rapper works hard to paint a clear picture for you, and to open your mind.
The structure of the song is unexpected, which makes it appear as quite fresh, and this is definitely one of the best vocal performances so far from PMKS, in my opinion. At over five minutes long the creative drive has been met here with a distinct awareness of how to craft a song.
Toots has a certain sound and style that makes the track feel believable, it demands that you listen – this confidence & flow pulls you in, and once you’re involved, every lyric works hard to keep you there.
Marino’s creativity needs no helping hand, his desire to craft musical experiences far outweighs a simple ability to perform. The instrumentation is unexpected, free from the prison of genre or industry labels – just the sort of thing this type of music was intended to represent.
The songwriting combined with the leading voice are what really make this project stand out. It’s refreshing to hear this genre making waves, what’s even more refreshing though, is how interesting, unexpected, and provocative so much of the writing is.
The past has the power to calm us, and creativity, new artistic ideas, have the power to motivate. It’s entirely up to you what you take away from this music, but it’s undoubtedly the sort that will be right at home in the long term playlist.
An undeniably unique album. A defiantly special project that fans of stories, folk music, and alternative artistry alike will enjoy embracing.
This meeting of various genres & styles makes for something loaded with fresh identity right now. And on top of this, you get the concept of the song – the lyrics, the bare poetry of it, the reflective honesty that digs at some of the deepest human emotions & thoughts.
The music is hugely powerful, it builds & satisfies in the perfectly realistic, alternative or progressive manner that classic instrumental rock should.
The imagery & concept are so simple, so relatable, yet this feels like a brand new scene – an alternate ending to your favourite film perhaps.
The heartfelt energy & realness of this song is not often found among such an electronically complex piece of music, or at least not at such a high quality.
This concept of getting over it is so much easier said than done, so the set up of this song works brilliantly in representing the journey through dwelling & on into freedom.
