Breakthrough Ft. ESSA
Let’s say you just came out a bit rattled after one hell of a rough day. One of those where you’re too exhausted to run it all off, but your head’s still careening too much to curl up under covers and drift off. Well, lucky for you, TRWBADOR’s got just the dose for you with “Breakthrough.”
One part mellow future bass, one part tailored hip hop verse, the UK based producers team up with Hip Hop legend ESSA for the perfect blend of catharsis and reflection. ESSA’s unobtrusive lyrics flow effortlessly over purifying harp melody, his cadence in tandem with dialed back beats, all calmly glazed over with interludes of producer Angharad Van Rijswijk’s soothing vocals. Perfect for making peace.
All told, it’s a powerful but beautiful piece to get re-centered. It’s honest without overly trying, enlightening without being sappy, impactful without being invasive. It’s highly re-playable. “Breakthrough” is out on May 26th as a digital download–or for all of you analoggers–a 7” will be hitting record stores. Indulge. When it drops, I know I’ll be sitting stereo-side after work, unwinding with a glass of super-manly wine.
