Song of the Day: Smoke - Saylavee

By in Video Flashback | 2 Comments

Emo is not limited to rock; it can be hip-hop, too. Here is a song from an album that has remained far under the radar – even for underground hip-hop – since its release in 2006. Smoke is a member of Oldominion, a Northwest collective with over 20 members. While Oldominion is outside the margins of Christian music, Smoke’s solo release Bleed is more Christocentric in its lyrics. “Saylavee” focuses around those difficult thoughts and feelings that are inevitable in human life; the lyrics are dense and the sound is wistful.

Intelligent lyricism with ambient instrumentation always seems to hook me, thanks for the find

Wistful is such a great word to describe it!
