Warrior is a beautiful track, a great starting point for audiences first discovering Elz Bentley or generally looking for something fresh, loaded with good vibes and positivity. It’s a short recording, less than two minutes; short and effective enough to leave you wanting much more. The musical backdrop is peaceful, ambient, and easy to get into. The artist’s leading voice floats alongside this with quiet confidence. His tone of voice is soft yet serious, driven, a calm kind of passion. The lyrics are presented with a gentle spoken-word style that makes it easy to follow and settles you down sweetly after a long day. It’s emotional, but not overwhelmingly so, and never too personal that it doesn’t connect.
