Expressing the emotion of loss is world-wide in these modern times; a relatable experience for the young & old alike. The impact of a loved one on ourselves, & our subsequent loves & interactions, unfolds itself infinitely – everyone makes an impact, every action has a reaction. Those lost to us live on in our memories – we represent them via the life we continue to live, & so on & so forth, to the end of time as we know it.
In ‘For You‘, by ArmstrongWW, we are met with the opportunity to confront these emotions in an impactful & meaningful manner, reflecting on yesterday with the greater purpose of bettering tomorrow. Featuring a beat that extrapolates on an old, cool jazz piano line, with a chromatic ascension that pulls out of the stereotypical scale/ mode, ArmstrongWW’s flow runs like a river down a tall, cloud-covered mountain. With wisdom & contemplation, the lyrics take the listener on a mental excursion back through better times, & utilize those times to better tomorrow – in some ways metaphorically, as those of us old enough to remember can recollect the days when hip hop was ‘saying something’, rather than just reflecting materialism – maybe it is saying something again.
The sun’s energy takes the form of poetry, & we are blessed with being within the life-giving trajectory of its solar rays. Absorb this piece with your third eye open, & jump down the rabbit hole, for it seems we are yet within the early days of ArmstrongWW’s offerings:Soundcloud Instagram
