“Kizuluh” is one of the amazing artists from New Brighton Minnesota, USA. “Spark Inside” is the latest release from this soul to all the audience out there. The artist’s unique fusion of genres creates an ambiance that sounds exciting, optimistic, and inspiring. The backing track is a superb display of creative production, and the rap vocal running alongside of it has that crucial depth and hopefulness that we are so very much in need of right now.
This particular track is structurally unique in that the opening verse is kept to a minimal length, and the harmonized hook section steps in fairly quickly, which is brilliant; extremely effective songwriting, and instantly intriguing – even if first heard just quietly in the background.
The whole track is constantly changing. The melodies evolve progressively, so there’s never a moment at which your attention is not held by the sound and the emerging story. Lyrically, the poetry is as sublime as ever, the meaning behind the words holds great value, and the various levels, as it were, that come together to make the song, each bring something unexpected, gradually increasing in intensity, always keeping things interesting.
The value of the song right now is perhaps much greater than it would have been in the past. The music has a cinematic sort of strength to it. Although gentle in nature, it’s a soundscape that washes over you like white water – the effect is immense. In amidst the synths you hear the distant echo, in among that you hear the slow yet captivating beat, and woven in along with all of this is the beauty of the leading voice.
The sound is complex, yet peaceful; intricate, yet easily accessible. The creativity is present in every moment – in the instrumentation, the mix, the production, the lyrics, the structure, and indeed the vocal performance. The emotion in the artist’s voice is clear and consistent and compelling, whether it’s the soft, almost whispered moments, or the bigger, soulful and striking ones.
