Love can be a boundless feeling. It can lock us into an armored bubble, keeping us from harm. Although it has its magic, love can break hearts and it can silence the clash of two pairs of lips. Dreaming of love will never be as intense as the real coming together of two honest chasers of passion. We as humans, need affection to live a purposeful life. We also need to pick ourselves up when love begins to lose its flame.
Singer/songwriter Rhys Lewis embarks on creating fables within his songs. The young musician tantalises with new track “What If”. It’s a multi-layered, triumphant, cathartic ballad of sorts. Throughout the track, he conveys a sense of loss, describing that he must patch up love’s stricken body, and that he must bring the girl back into his world.
“‘What If’ is out now! A sad anthem for all the over-thinkers out there still hung up on the ex they broke up with 2 years ago…” Lewis wrote on Twitter as he launched his new tune.
The descriptions are poignant. Lewis’s ability to stir up emotion makes him such a unique songwriter. He dazzles but also seeks redemption, and he implements into everything he produces, a light. This light may not always be brighter than the sun, but it’s always there.
“What If” is yet another forward thinking track. It doesn’t raise hell, but the subject matter is eventful and the arrangements are intricate. Lewis knows how to construct chords and compelling lyrics which intertwine to create a showpiece.
