It is so easy to fall into the slums of the everyday terrors happening around the world. At times, you can feel as if there isn’t much of a solution for all of this mess. Lucky enough for us, Mihali Savoulidis of Twiddle is offering some good proverbs to help us get through these turmultuous times with his brand new solo track called “Fading State”.
What makes this song so powerful is the three reggae heavy hitters illuminating current social and political problems…
The song is mainly driven by its lyrics, with classic reggae guitar riffs and a simple drum pattern in the background. What makes this song so powerful is the three reggae heavy hitters illuminating current social and political problems that we are facing today through their melodic lyrics. Not to mention, this track was further produced by Johnny Cosmic of Stick Figure –that's four major reggae-rock names! Mihali highlights injustice in the world and offers up a solution, “There is so much hate in the air and its suffocating me. Where’s the good in our people? Where’s the brave and free? So, I send my love in the people in the form of sound.”
Nahko (of Nahko and Medicine for the People) adds some rhythm and rhyme to the song, educating on our own ability to heal to world, while Trevor Hall ignites the flames of anger that is felt by many people in America about the current political state, with lyrics like “it’s time to wake up”.
The gripping reality of climate change, political and social differences have left us divided, yet “Fading State” reminds us that we are in a position to make a real change in order to make the future better for the next generation. Mihali has not yet revealed the title or release date of his upcoming solo project, but will be treating audiences to sneak peaks of cuts from a rumored forthcoming album he recorded while on the road with a short run of solo tour dates this December.
