REVIEW: Songer Releases New Album 'The Price Of Therapy' Photograph

Honest, vulnerable, thought provoking, emotional. These are just some of the words that spring to mind when thinking of Songer's music. His latest offering 'The Price of Therapy' is all of this and more. Paired with his lyricism and ability to skilfully put his thoughts and feelings into a track, this opens up a door to create a project that invites listeners into his world, as he shares his emotions through his music.

Songer's latest project, 'The Price of Therapy', is a deeply introspective journey into his own mind and how he is feeling, wrapped in layers of evocative melodies and poignant lyricism. During this album, Songer delves fearlessly into themes of mental health, relationships, and the struggles of self-discovery, crafting a musical experience that is as raw as it is relatable.

From the opening track 'Thought park', listeners are greeted with a sense of vulnerability as Songer lays bare his innermost thoughts and emotions. The production throughout the album is lush and immersive, with each track carefully curated - seemingly aiming to evoke a specific mood or sentiment. Whether it's the haunting piano melodies of 'If The Sky Would Stay Blue' or the Drum and Bass style beat of 'Evinha,' every song serves as a window into the artist's psyche.

One of the standout aspects of 'The Price of Therapy' is Songer's ability to seamlessly blend genres, incorporating elements of pop, R&B, and electronic music to create a sound that feels both familiar and refreshingly original. This versatility is perhaps best exemplified in tracks like 'Evinha', where soaring vocals are juxtaposed against gritty, industrial-inspired beats, resulting in a sonic landscape that is as captivating as it is unpredictable.

Thematically, the album is a meditation on the various masks we wear in our daily lives and the toll that authenticity often exacts. Tracks like 'Dec22nd' and 'Find Peace' explore the ways in which we hide our true selves from the world, while songs like 'Beware of the Dog' and 'Wide Awake' offer boasts of the spoils that success can bring. It's a testament to Songer's songwriting prowess that he is able to tackle such weighty subject matter with nuance and sensitivity, never veering into melodrama or cliché.

At its core, 'The Price of Therapy' is a deeply personal and introspective album that invites listeners to confront their own insecurities and vulnerabilities. In an age where mental health issues are increasingly prevalent, Songer's willingness to address these topics head-on feels both timely and necessary. With its captivating melodies, thought-provoking lyrics, and impeccable production, 'The Price of Therapy' stands as a testament to the power of music to heal, inspire, and ultimately, connect us all.
