The Weeknd - The Morning | Song Review


 The Weeknd was a name that was common on the streets of Toronto, not knowing who he or they were, anything about them or even any information about them. All people knew was that The Weeknd was making great music. Something that was going to revolutionize R&B as we've known it and make it better and better. 'The Morning' is one such track that tells you how good 'The Weeknd' was and how to presented R&B in the way we know it today.

The morning is the song that introduced me to 'The Weeknd' and his amazing mixtape called 'The House of Balloons'. If you've ever wanted to know how the life of the XO crew is and want to a get a preview of their drug infused party lifestyle, this your front row tickets to that. The songs is down tempo, self introspective cut about how the morning a passionate night between Abel and his life lover. The morning has dawned upon them and now it's time to think about what they've done, was it the right decision or not and how the things are going to go forward after this.

Musically it's a solid track. A guitar opens you up to the magical voice of the Weeknd and then we hear his saga of a drug filled night and the morning after that. Abel has something in his voice that transports you to the world beyond us, into a state of trance which makes us surrender to the world that 'The Weeknd' wants us to be in. Special mention has to be given to the instrumental at the end, which takes the song to a level which is beyond expression. If you're looking to start listening 'The Weeknd' the this is the song that you should start your journey with.

Overall Rating:
★★★★☆

Prodigal - When We Bleed

Prodigal is an Alternative Pop/Rock artist from Finland. The nature of his music is to be an eccentric mix of all the different styles he listens to and creates something catchy, immediate and current out of it all. His new single 'When We Bleed' was released independently ahead of his upcoming debut album. 'When We Bleed' reflects on a world where every decision and action seems to be motivated by blatant narcissism of some kind. Trying to navigate these odd times, the song tries to find relief in numbers and the fact that for better or worse, we're never really alone in trying to make sense of it all. Listen to the song: Prodigal HQ · When We Bleed
