Jimi Lucid’s song, Lilth, is a mesmerizing stream of psychedelic harmonies that brings you into another world outside of reality. One hit and you’re floating into an abyss of sorrow, pain, pleasure and understanding. The sound reminds me of a colorful enchanted forest filled with emotions and pleasure. All of that “feeling” makes Lilth.
Androu’s song, Great, is a combination of humorous storytelling about someone’s well-being; in a modernize flow that appeals overall. At first, you are sunk into a story about not being well with how thing are. You want to change it but you just don’t feel like it. Maybe this song is a motivation to keep going even when you don’t feel…well..not so great.
When I listen to “Almost Summer ”, it reminds me of a summer day filled with family and friends. It is a song you can sit back and chill, and just feel the positive energy and vibrations in the air. This song makes you want to toast to the good life. What attracted me to this song is the dope beat! It feels older than what it seems; it gives you a 90’s type vibe with a fresh modern sound. Overall this song has a great mood if you’re looking for something to vibe out to over the summer.
Carde’s new song, Working & Paying, speaks volumes of how society is set-up for the rich to get richer and the poor; you know the saying. “If you still think that I’m playing, then you ain’t hearing what I’m saying”. He talks about relationships in the matter of business, associates and money. Learning how to create your own revenue with your artistry, how to get your generational wealth and own your rights. All in all, he’s tired of hoping he make it, rather he’s going to make shit happen on his own terms.
Kisos’s song, Happily Ever After, sings of romance that started off amazing then slowly started to crumble because of “happiness”. The rejection of love is such a powerful illusion for people. When you see someone else that is with the love of your life; you develop jealously. It’s a nature reaction, but the true way of understanding is to grow up, control those emotions and move on. Learn from what happened and apply to your next love. And then, hopefully, you live happily ever after.
Kiyanosh’s track, CheezTV!, is a witty audio fragment of his fusion of funk, hip-hop and entertainment references. All the way from the lofi vocals to the swift metaphors, it really shows the versatility of his sound. I like the how the story can relate to anyone no matter the age and the consistent anthem that self love is the greatest gift of all. When was the last time you’ve told yourself, “I love myself”. Say Cheeeezzzz
DaniLeigh’s song, Lil Bebe, is what you will get if you mixed champagne, ice cream and intimacy. I know, sounds weird but let me break it down. The reason for the champagne, is because of the bubbly and snappy strings and pianos in the track. It makes you move in an adventurous way. The vocals are the ice cream. Smooth flavors in the way she switches up throughout the song; it’s cold. And the content and the mood, it made me think of intimacy in any medium. Only a keen eye would understand what that means.
Wish I could have met you in Cleveland on the 21st
