Rhodes – Let It All Go (ft. Birdy)

“I don’t know why we need to break so hard. I don’t know why we break so hard.”

An iconic rendition of a tune channeled to perfect serenity and flawless tranquility has been gifted to the world. Soulful and heartfelt lyrics guide the listener through an emotional journey of broken passion and sensitivity. A simple piano progression ultimately develops into an ambient, bewitching mass of percussion, violins, and echos that formulates melodic magic. “Let It All Go.” Let the music be your escort.

The contrast of the deep vocals of Rhodes and the soprano-esque Birdy is a surprising mesh that blends rather faultlessly. Both are entities of desire and love as much of their music pays homage to a beaten heart. Birdy, already an indie favorite thanks to her cover of Bon Iver’s “Skinny Love,” is a prime musician to send the tune to success.

She’s acquired nearly 400k Twitter followers, and retains a significantly dedicated fanbase willing to devote their ears to her gentle voice and alternative persona. Even so, the duo seems keen on keeping the music a priority over the amount of purchases and plays. Rather than release the song under both SoundCloud accounts, the link is solely connected to Rhodes. Still maintaining an impressive 16k+ follower count, it is significantly less than the 2M Birdy earned on the song sharing website. It’s a humble act and is quite honorable. Finding artists that have their minds set on pure music is a rarity in itself.

“Let It All Go” is five possessing minutes that send a listener into a peaceful trance. It is a gateway to the soul through a mesmerizing feat of desire and pain. Commence the journey on SoundCloud, Spotify, and iTunes.
