Fatherdude must really be feeling the heat leave New York, because his latest release is chill in all the right ways.
Flush with R&B and electronic elements, the listener quickly realizes Fatherdude is taking it to a new level with his latest single, “Let Me Live.” The track smoothly welcomes itself into the listener’s headspace with snaps and a subtle thump of a kick drum. By the time a foot’s tapping, Fatherdude’s vocals make sure to hold the door for the rest of the track.
The New York native known for his powerful voice sings with a soulful resolute tone, “The devil dared me just to get me to stop/ but you think I still needed saving/ let me live my life” moments before a bountiful bombardment of bass joins the beat and sends it from chill to unarguably catchy. The true tone of the track isn’t overtly dance-y, nor is it reminiscent of any other work; rather it’s music with a message. The crystalline lyrics and gripping sonic transitions encourage the listener to demand what growth and being present demands, absolute freedom.
