Pablo Dylan, "Eye of the Storm"

via Pablo Dylan on Spotify

Spare musical arrangements that grow as the song builds, patterned rhymes sounding more like lyric verse, a deep vocabulary, and a sense of history:  these are what you will hear in the new single from Pablo Dylan, “Eye of the Storm.”  The track appeared today on Spotify, with links supplied on Dylan's Instagram and YouTube accounts.

Dylan’s music since 2011 — both his own, and the music he has produced for many other artists — has been generally dubbed rap.  From the beginning verse of “Eye of the Storm,” through its cautionary calls and responses that hearken back to the language of America’s history, there’s much here that’s rich and strange, and new.  Listen up.

 

 

In the dawn of day I see the cracks

From her mighty lakes

as daylight breaks

As all that is now begins to pass with the wind….

 

The armies march on the morrow’s eve

Across the river into the trees

Unholy men commit wholesome deeds

In solemn seas you can hear the pleas

Of an ancient mystic nation that is torn

Riding through the eye of the storm….

 

A house divided just cannot last

In an ancient mystic nation that is torn

Riding through the eye of the storm….
