When you hear today’s generation rooting from the punk/alternative sounds of the grunge era it is hard to overlook Brakence. His unique voice stands alone as Brakence puts his own spin on that chemical romance style of music. In “Dropout” he fights his demons with dropping out to pursue his musical path. Dropping out can be looked down on & you can feel the emotion almost instantly from the first line. The first line “dropped out I was 17” accompanied by computerized sounds & a sweet electric riff brings you right into his world.
There is nothing better than a song that puts you directly into the artists shoes of how he/she is feeling. This song does just that which creates this euphoric sound that will have you listening over & over again. That being said every great song deserves a great visual treatment the members of Overcast did just that. This music visual group rooted from Tempe, Arizona has built their own visual platform. Overcast has killed it on numerous productions in their own style. They remind me a lot of Lyrical Lemonade in it’s building days with numerous upcoming artists. With that they definitely got a tremendous talent in upcoming artist in Brakence.
The video continues to bounce back & forth from a dark school scene to a bright sand dunes scene portraying the dark & brights to the decision of dropping out. These scenes show the side of Brakence‘s deep cutting lyrics such as one that stood out the most being “you are who you are don’t keep you waiting”. Which leads me to my conclusion about this great visual. Brakence & Overcast will continue to be who they are in this music industry with great sounds & visuals while numerous musical fans will be waiting for both of their next sounds & visuals.
