Go Home – [Highway]

Seattle artist Highway has appeared on Lyrical Lemonade a few different times now, rapidly building out his catalog with a variety of different sounds and styles. From “Cash Shit” to “On My Mind,” it feels like a new Highway song is getting stuck in my head by the week, most recently occurring with “Go Home” upon the release of the song’s visual companion a few weeks back.

In my opinion, “Go Home” is one of Highway’s most impressive songwriting efforts to date, commanding the slower pace of the song with a thoughtful supply of quotable lines – the most impressive of which land in the hook, which has been stuck in my head all week long. Meanwhile, in a vocal sense, Highway’s deliveries build themselves into the production, creating a sense of sonic cohesivity that allows “Go Home” to stick out, understated as it may seem upon first listen. It’s an addicting song, and one that only benefits from the colorful haze of the music video – complete with read-by-line lyrics that emphasize the strength in Highway’s pen.

As time has gone on, Highway’s last project – The Way – has aged incredibly well, largely thanks to the time and care spent on the accompanying visuals. Seattle’s own is building a world around his music, and with songs as unique and memorable as “Go Home,” he hasn’t missed yet.

Peep the “Go Home” music video below and if you haven’t already, give The Way a spin here!
