Rise-Ascend has released a new tune, Feeling Good, to provide a welcome uplift during these less inspiring times.
It’s a stripped back track with Rise’s vocal style emanating good vibes. There’s an easy going flow throughout, accentuated by the underlying, hopeful guitar melody. Together, this lifts the mood even further and adds calmness to the track.
The rapping style is quite similar to Mos Def in the way it’s punchy, but gentle at the same time. This creates ample amount of time for you to ponder the message at your own pace. Auto-tune is used too, but it’s not heavily laid on, making the genuine feel of song remain.
It’s an ode to happiness and how to achieve it, which is something we do need reminding of from time to time, especially when there’s not a lot out there at the moment.
