The highly anticipated collaboration between conscious lyricist St.Jude and blues sensation Nia Wyn is finally here! The two artists combine their unique styles to create a poignant and thought provoking track, inspired by the waves of social injustice that currently face us all. Successfully weaving images of social commentary over Opus Dice’s hard hitting production, the duo are set to strike a chord in both musical and political communities.
‘The Wheel (Watch It Burn)’ is the first single from St. Jude’s upcoming project ‘Natural Progression’. This song encapsulates societal problems and divisions in today’s post Brexit Britain, yet holds the firm belief that we can unite for the benefit of everyone. Both artists describe their awareness of repeated global injustices, yet demonstrate an optimistic outlook for the future.
This combined with dark acoustic samples, live guitar, melodic keys and rolling percussion have set an exciting precedent for future 4D releases.
Furthermore, the subtle presence of philosophical work by Boethius perfectly compliments the descriptive nature of the verses. This juxtaposing notion of time passing us by like a wheel, demonstrates that whether terrific or tragic, key moments of history are impermanent and always changing.
