YTURNAL introduces a personal favorite tune from the month thus far, raising the bar in a subtle yet powerful way.
To welcome us into the new release, Forever, raw piano, and freely flowing rhythms meet the identity of voice and vast poetic imagery. The style is familiar yet unusual, accessible yet interesting, and also the idea and story within frequently blur the borders between melody and spoken word.
YTURNAL is an indie-pop artist who was inspired by his uncle, the late reggae legend Bob Marley. YTURNAL’s artistry preserves the family lineage of music royalty by delivering messages that stir your soul. His sound is also inspired by a blend of genres from groups and artists such as Coldplay, Smashing Pumpkins, Marvin Gaye, and John Legend. The new single, Forever, was born from the deep love a father feels for his child while dealing with the challenges of fatherhood in today’s society and is dedicated to his daughter.
Forever ebbs and flows and pulses in a fantastic and contemporary way that blends piano, keys, and strings towards a truly satisfying backdrop that hangs lightly in your ears, combining pop hooks with an indie rock sensibility.
Vocally, the track is laced with emotion and vulnerability as the artist spills his heart out, talking about the ups and downs, the fears, and the love that comes with being a father. The lyrics are honest and real, and they hit home for anyone who has ever been a parent or is thinking about becoming one.
The track is also a reminder that the bonds we have with our children are Forever, and no matter what happens in this world, those bonds will never be broken.
A real pop gem with some amazing musicianship, appealing vocals, and smart production that will easily withstand repeat spins/streams.
