LYFE CHANGES (Album) - BNRD

With plenty of artists making music that sounds more cinematic than it has ever come off before, many of them are finding ways to translate that sense of imagery into an appropriate visual medium of any kind. 👁 And while most tend to bring that message to life through videos, others have proven to accomplish that visual sense without even needing to release one and BNRD’s expert sense of instrumentation and overall composition, shines throughout each and every moment that his new project “LYFE CHANGES” has in store. 🎁 And he pulls it off by gathering a wide variety of talents to showcase a new level of emotional vulnerability and songwriting not often seen or heard. 🔊✨The keyboard-tinged title track and its bursting and the electrifying pairing in “All 9ite” are two forceful examples of this, kicking the album off by essentially painting a vivid picture of emotions through vividly mesmerising instrumentation and raw expression alone. 🎨 These are two concepts that play directly into this brand new world that BNRD impressively brought into reality, and became repeated motifs throughout the rest of the album. 🔂 For instance, some tracks offer up a solemn trip through a sea of rising synths and slow piano passages such as on “Honda” and “Complete”. 🌊 Meanwhile, settled-down tracks like “Water Your Garden” & “Devine” really let the lyrics stand out on their own, and with this space comes some of the most emotionally-emphatic and downright biting passages on the project. 🎙 Moreover, there are others that are brought to life through hard driving percussion that makes for quite the forceful presentation on tracks like “Lingala”, “Dark”, and “Houdini”. 🔥 But what remains true is that BNRD utilised a wide-open range of influence to effectively let the project shine through it’s rather multifaceted tracklisting, and this has resulted in something absolutely invigorating that essentially accomplishes enough to be considered worthy of the term, “landmark.” 💎
