Up and coming Ontario-based artist Fourth Born released their latest single “Last Cigarette” on June 8th and offered listeners a poignant metaphorical message wrapped up in a soulful up-vibe Funk-soaked Indie Blues Pop arrangement.
There are very few ‘good-vibe’ tracks which manage to shimmer with a vibrant tonal iridescence, but Last Cigarette achieved it with discernible ease in the short and sticky-sweet single Last Cigarette. The single alludes to the empowerment of letting go of what no longer serves you before embracing the excitement which lies in change and possibility, and the message definitely doesn’t fail to resonate.
The offbeat acoustic rhythms carve out the perfect platform for the soulful, stripped back Bluesy vocals which sit in perfect synergy with the intricate progressions of the instrumentals. In short, it’s one of the most captivatingly sincere tracks which we’ve checked out this year. So do your soul a favour and stick Fourth Born on your radar, he’s irrefutably one to watch.
