So often art that comes from struggle is the sort that connects and draws an audience in the most. In the case of “The Guv”, his honesty and his willingness to put every bit of experience and emotion into his songwriting and his performances is undoubtedly what will appeal to listeners or fans far and wide. “Big Words” is a delicate track – a beautifully mellow backdrop supports the performance and makes for a thoughtful ambiance that suits the mood of the song perfectly.
While its introduction and opening verse start things off slowly, with more of an awesome rhythm than anything else, gradually, as the tempo picks up, so does the addictiveness to the track, helped greatly by a thumping beat that will have listeners stamping their feet along to it in clubs across the continent or see them trying to resist jamming along while on a summer’s day drive.
“Big Words” is still a fairly new musical project and it’s interesting to hear his sound pour through and evolve. In this case, the song has so much that gives it a clear identity, as well as having all of that which makes it feel intense and heavy. The song is light-hearted in nature – the musician’s name implies this anyway, as does the song title, as do the lyrics, and indeed the accompanying audio. The music contrasts with this easy-going aura and creates something that appears to, quite unquestionably, give no fucks whatsoever.
It isn’t the most lyrically straightforward song, especially for those unfamiliar with the genre, but the words fit well with the instrumentation and the mix of amazing rhythms ensures this – meaning the lyrical side of things isn’t so much of a problem – ultimately the music metaphorically speaks for itself. All listeners are sure to love this track while it also works as a rather good introduction to those just discovering it. If the music continues to grow as it is doing so right now as well.
The track is high energy, and high shock factor, as well as being creatively free from anything predictable or common. At the very same time though, the melody, the synths, the development of the soundscape – it all works hard to build around you something that is quickly familiar and easy to get on board with a piece of music and performance. The hook is infectious in a brilliantly vibrant way, and there’s so much potential for further genre remixes that could take that central melody and passion and redesign them in any number of ways. It’s a great song, The Guv has done well to create something totally unique yet still relatable and appealing.
