Crywolf is one of the greatest artists and musical minds of our time. He has given us endless EP’s, beautiful melodies, but most importantly music that will stick with us for a lifetime. His songs are powerful and packed with emotion, you almost have to prepare yourself before pushing play. However, nothing he has created compares to what lies in front of him. He is on the verge of dropping his debut album and “Rising, Rising” is just the first of many unforgettable records on it. He explains it better than I ever could…
I’m not sure when it started, but for a long time now I’ve had this reoccurring daydream where I walk outside my house, look upwards, and start to slowly float towards the sky. Suspended in the air, rising up, the people and buildings on the ground getting smaller and smaller… It has always given me this very unique feeling that I can’t pin down; Almost like a nostalgia for something that hasn’t happened yet. It’s poetic. Profound. My pulse quickens, I get this invigorating feeling of moving on to another world. It’s almost a sort of “L’appel Du Vide.” Suddenly nothing else matters. I close my eyes and feel absolute peace.
Where am I going? What am I escaping? What awaits me?
I’m not sure where this single came from inside of me, but I know it has to do with that image. The entire time I was writing, recording and producing this, I felt it. It doesn’t have specified verses and choruses, it floats from movement to movement, slowly evolving and growing. I wanted it to be a journey. Every time I listen to it, even now, I feel I’m getting a glimpse into that other world. The clouds are parting, I’m venturing into the void. I hope that, in some small way, it can make you feel the same way.
