T.S.O.T - SIRAWA

Sirawa’s new release “The Story of Tyler” is a rather unique piece that dives into some torrid subject matter that you wouldn’t have normally expected from him. ✍🏾 While some of his previous work might boast a more fun, carefree and chaotic lifestyle, the lyrics on this track in particular have an almost cinematic feeling to them, rooted in experience while still seemingly decorated in Sirawa’s inimitable personality. 🎙On this record, he really shows us another side of what he is capable of, through some unique storytelling and emotionally stimulating production, that makes up for a cohesive release, and quite frankly, one of the more interesting songs i’ve listened to in a minute. 💭 He goes on to utilise some lighthearted, almost elementary-sounding piano keys, that are accented by spread out percussion and a very pungent, hard-hitting bass that comes mixed in with some jazz elements in the distance. 🎹 This melancholy backdrop matched with his DIY style of delivery further emphasizes the honest nature of the song’s spirit, combining bop inducing basslines with transparent storytelling, as he manages to peel back another layer and provide a lot more formulated introspection on a narrative that unfolds with some extremely dejected themes such as betrayal, losing love, fake friends, and just life overall. 🥀 All in all, I genuinely would like to hear part 2 of this story. 📖
