Trudging guitar jangles and a valiant vocal lead ignite Love Crumbs‘ new track “Cavalcades”. While the verses chug along with a meditative calmness, the chorus cathartically erupts like a soaring spring of hope. Conceived while Black Lives Matter protests lined the streets this past summer following George Floyd’s death, the track’s exalting organ adds texturally richness to a righteous soundscape that serves as a sonic processional.
“Cavalcades” is familiar enough in its melodic structure to invite a sing-along feel, but stick around for the heady bridge at 2:55 which transforms the melody’s somber acceptance into a resilient empowerment. Lyrics like “we’re moving forward, and you’re moving backward, step aside”, call to recharge on the optimism that morality will bend toward justice. Rejuvenating.
“Cavalcades” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of January 2021’ Spotify playlist.
