The Great Atomic Implosion
This song is 2 minutes long, only 2 minutes and it’s the biggest thing I’ve heard for a possible eternity.
The quietness of this song is so immense, so loud, so innocently violent. It holds a narrative that shook me to my bones — I was actually shaking. It’s a cathartic and silent cacophony of vocals and poetry that slams you into the floor with a nuclear immensity, only to pick you up in a beautiful embrace of love and care.
Vocally, this song is a slow wave, a slow-moving noise, that layers itself over itself. Not to mention, the poetry-induced story and layered topical theme that bubbles and boils until the pressure releases itself in a muted light of sound and leaves you with the aftermath of an imploded bomb and a wasteland of thoughts.
