Time is the brand new single from artist Onesmile. It’s far more accurate to use the term artist here, over simply musician or rapper, as this release offers a total trip for audiences to experience and embrace. Onesmile is a well talented awesome artist from New York and always wanted to do something fresh and unique in the music industry.
There’s a lot of space on this record, the vibe is light and atmospheric – laying bare certain ideas and really keeping your focus on the thoughts within, as well as allowing you that room and that time to consider and understand it all. The songwriting deals with a young person conflicted with pending decisions – this is done with a few simple details and an easy going verse leading softly and smoothly up towards a distinctly melodic hook. The hook is really uplifting sounding, contrasting greatly with the central difficulties of the song, and this makes it a lot more accessible and inviting in more ways than perhaps a standard musical approach to struggle in might. The track brings the Hip hop good vibes and impressive writing that audiences will have come to expect from Onesmile, and all the while it offers something completely unexpected and deep.
The music alone, throughout “Time”, is complex and ever-evolving. The detail is superb, the creativity is unstoppable, and the lyricism really presents a series of ideas and stories that come through as fresh or untold before – at least not in this kind of way.
Onesmile is an artist who, by all accounts, seems unaffected by whatever the music world or the industry around him is doing. This means that his music and his artistry come through almost unedited – the perfect representation of whatever was initially in his mind or in his heart.
