Commenting on the track, Drapht notes “This song came to life out of a lot of time for self-reflection during the infamous year of 2020. Realising I may not have been coping as well as I thought I was and I suddenly felt like I was on the verge of a mental breakdown with all of my inner-dialogue and the discourse that was manifesting around me.”
“Like for many, music has always been my therapy and it’s always really cathartic for me to be able to turn a negative into a positive, let go of those thought and feelings and release them out into the world “
With a platinum records, multi-platinum and gold singles and two ARIA awards under his belt, it’s no secret that Drapht is one Australia’s greats. Whether you focus on his lyrics, his melodic hooks (or focus on nothing at all and just enjoy yourself) as a songwriter Drapht can pretty much do everything. Each of his four subsequent albums – Pale Rider (2003), Who Am I (2005), Brothers Grimm (2008), the ARIA #1 Life Of Riley (2010), Seven Mirrors (2016) and Arabella Street (2018)– brought increasing levels of complexity and refinement, ascending Drapht to the absolute upper echelon of Australia’s stacked card of hip-hop heavyweights.
