MUSIC FARMER 5 - Review by Adam Jones
Groove, Grit, and Soul; A Mosaic Indie Anthem
Amongst the lofi-driven, emo-laden landscape of modern indie music, a guiding light of vibrance emerges in the form of EAGER LONDON, an enigmatic virtuoso hailing from the sun-kissed city of San Diego. With "Graffiti Butterfly," he presents a sonic masterpiece that is as enchanting as it is revolutionary.
The odyssey commences with a nod to hip-hop's golden roots, paving the way for EAGER LONDON's suave and mesmerizing vocals. Each note is a stroke of creativity, painting a colorful soundscape that envelops you in a sonic cinema of indie, pop, rock and funk - creating an uplifting, transcendent air of groove and grit.
In this audial embrace, vocal harmonies cascade like sunlight through leaves, forming a radiant cocoon of positivity. The guitar's syncopated rhythms dance like shadows on a sunny day, while the deep bass murmurs like the heartbeat of the earth. Horns whisper secrets from the distance, their calls weaving through the fabric of the song.
The drums arrive - not merely to be heard, but to be felt. They resonate with a primal energy - a tight, infectious groove that reverberates through your very core. It's a percussive awakening, a call to the rhythm that dwells within us all.
EAGER LONDON's vocal prowess, a convergence of dynamism and soul, conjures memories of musical luminaries like the Black Eyed Peas / will.i.am and Outkast, yet remains distinctly his own. His voice, a chameleon of sound, traverses the spectrum of human emotion, culminating in a falsetto that soars skyward, touching the very essence of what it means to feel.
But the heart of "Graffiti Butterfly" lies in its narrative - an emotionally resonant tale of love's resilience. It is an anthem for the broken-hearted, a reminder of the beauty and strength that lies within, waiting to unfurl its wings once more. EAGER LONDON's plea to the 'Graffiti Butterfly' is more than a song; it's a soulful journey towards healing and rediscovery.
