Diggin’ This: Stephen – “Crossfire”
23-year-old Los Angeles artist Stephen combines bleak piano keys, menacing bass throbs, razor-sharp muted guitar stabs, and, yes, what sounds like actual crossfire (0:21) on “Crossfire.”
Despite the melancholy feel throughout, there is a sense of hope that arises from the impassioned chorals towards the end, especially during the song’s final moments when the sole sound of birdsong enters the fray.
Track of the day.
