One of my favorite artists is making his way back onto our pages today for a brand new song that is stunningly beautiful in every way. I had the honor of covering Brandon last month for his heart tugging song, “Weep” and now I get to write some words about his brand new song that just dropped today.
“Elastic” is just the latest masterpiece that the Riverside native has decided to bless us with. This new release is honestly too big for my words to do it justice; So, for this article, I had the pleasure of integrating some thoughts from another Lyrical Lemonade writer about Brandon’s new piece. Chuck Ramos has an ear for music and when asking him about “Elastic”, he explained that it is:
“…a love ballad through and through. With perceived ease, Brandon brings to life the malleability of love’s forms and feelings. If the context of the song wasn’t moving enough, Brandon’s soaring vocals beautifully translate the emotion and unprecedented anxiety that surrounds a person’s undying infatuation with their significant other. The song in its totality is a blissful display of talent from a rising artist who paints the most vivid of sonic pictures through performance.”
Brandon has a way of filling his music up with every single one of his emotions. He takes his immediate feelings and allows us to feel with him, which is such an intimate display of artistry. The way in which he bleeds his love and passion into “Elastic” is truly a spectacle. Brandon makes the music that we will be telling our grandchildren about. There’s truly nothing like it and I doubt anything will come close anytime soon. I was able to grab a quote from Brandon about the song and he states that the song is exactly what it sounds like. It’s a love song. He explains that:
“This girl I’m writing about is very special to me and I can say it in my heart that I love her. With that, I don’t know what to do with all of this going on and the sequence of events happening in life right now. I’ve tried to surrender all of this into Gods hands, but these are my raw feelings. The things that I can’t put into normal words, but that’s just the way it is. I don’t know why it’s like that but it just is. My love is very strong for her. It’s not plastic, it’s elastic. It’s not fake or phony. It stretches as far and as wide as possible; longer than my arms can stretch. It’s unscathed, unshattered, unmoving and impenetrable. It can withstand anything. I don’t care about anything else. It doesn’t matter what anyone says about me or anyone’s opinion… I just want to be with her and that’s it’s.”
If that quote isn’t enough to move you then I truly don’t know what else will. There’s nothing I can say to follow that up, so all that’s really left if for y’all to go and listen to this brand new song be Brandon and feel all the of the emotions known to man. I’ve attached the Spotify link down below, so give it a listen and let us know what you think!
