Deeper Than Music REviews aday's "SubRosa" Album
Aday is one of those artists who paint a vivid picture of himself good or bad allowing himself to be vulnerable in his music. His wordplay is very sharp, if you appreciate lyrics and wordplay you will appreciate his pen game. Aday has a gift of creating vivid visualization through his words, easily bringing you into his world. Aday touches on heavy topics as well, main themes of this album are struggles Aday faces and how drinking helps him cope. Track “Poison” is a standout track that speaks to this. Most of the album mid-tempo and the cadence for the most part remain constant. The album is very reflective and introspective where Aday gives you a representation of himself good and bad.
The Production isn’t cookie cutter and displays variety. The album’s production has elements of country, funk, rock, lounge and hip hop. This album reminds me of Kid Cuddi’s first album “Man On The Moon” and Aday starts out the album with two standout songs to set the tone.
Revolver – wild west vibe. Nice wordplay Clever analogy of a revolver and taking six shots. Good opening song to the album.
Potrait – Mid-Tempo song where Aday paints a portrait of himself.
If you appreciate wordplay, and music from an artist bearing his soul SubRosa is a stand out album with promise for 2019. A must peep!!!!
"My motivation was continuing my roses legacy.
The roses are symbolic of my addictions and faults and the things I love in life" - Aday
