While many Electronica artists tend to leave the sentiment behind their lyrics fairly light, up and coming artist S.O.S went in the complete opposite direction and created a compelling narrative with her single “Firebrick”.
The atmospheric yet feisty instrumentals slowly gain momentum as you’re deeply immersed in the single which poignantly celebrates the strength of those who seem to constantly find themselves in toxic situations.
The metaphors which S.O.S created for Firebrick add plenty of weight to the single, add her vocal talent to the equation and it’s easy to feel crushed by the emotive hit. When you are able to draw your attention away from the vocals, you will appreciate the contemporary feel to the beat which keeps the perfect balance between moody and uplifting.
