Collins and Streiss - Free review

Year : 2018
Genre : Pop
Label : Independent
Origin : Canada
Where to check out: > - here - <

With their track called "Free", Canadian duo Collins and Streiss gives you one thorough, unperturbed opportunity to hear and feel how their collective artistic credo bends to the meticulously formatted will of positivity. Anatomically reminiscent to a friendly, beefy church song, Free is quick to reassure you that no harm will be done to the fabric of the universe during the playtime of the declaration, and indeed all sentiments of shade are thoroughly discarded from the safe space the song seeks to convey-, and, in a sense, imprison you in.

From a structural point of view, the statement reflects the central anatomy of a collaborative effort which indeed has been made via the most conservative approach possible, resulting in an intact, yet relatively immobile core that could not have been tampered with during the process, as said core itself was the initial main idea all along. The song sounds pleasant, even. Yet, its artistic foundation is having quite hard of a time showcasing anything that freedom would be in jeopardy of. In this sense, the effort bites more than it is about to chew. No challenges are showcased herein except for the management of the unbearable realization of being devoid of those. All life-critical things and comforts are in an arm's vicinity. Everyone is safe and FREE. The irony is considerable, and might very well be of deliberate character. Hard to tell, which is the most optimal aspect of the song.

The track assumes you to be a metaphoric mirror, situated at the center of a heavily censored environment, one which is devoid from content worth critically reflecting on. The track demonstrates a sense of interesting corrosion, resulting from artistic conformity, and the most interesting part is how the narrator seem to fail to see that his diagnosis is a threat signal, and not an achievement. Or, maybe the artist IS perfectly aware, and he is adamant enough at conveying the message that he is ready to sacrifice himself in the process, even. If the case is such, then the song is pure genius. With "Free", you are "Free" to see that freedom is in danger, once everyone safely forgot its price.
