In the context of music, the word heavy is synonymous with a subgenre of rock. It creates an image of pounding drums, throbbing bass, screeching guitars, and screaming vocals. Dreuw’s new song, Heavy, is quite the opposite of all these things.
It is a beautifully crafted track. Dreamy, cinematic, and most importantly, heartfelt. A symphonic set of vocals cascade wistfully alongside meditative synth tones, all underpinned by effective acoustic guitar work. The production is also well worthy of a mention. The choice of sounds perfectly represents the vibe. Both artfully and expertly crafted, Heavy is a 2020 composition masterclass.
With a hat tip to Jose Gonzalez and Bon Iver, Dreuw delivers a song worthy of your time and attention. Heavy is drone folk for the modern age.
Heavy in sentiment, heavy in emotion, heavy in beauty. This is Heavy.
