The brand-new sentinel EP by Colonel Red, 'Armz Prevail', is a contrivance of sublime, terrestrial, musically charged melody, a conscious declaration drenched with the sound of wailing souls. Music, voice and essence permeate together as one from start to finish, shining with inspiring light through every song.
Colonel Red, an Artivist in his own right, advocates the belief that it is our divine right to live our lives with a free will, unperturbed by convention. In Redz' own words, "strive to be confident and unafraid, then you have a true direction for your life". Empirical experience breathes life into the Armz Prevail EP with reverence, fortitude and grace.
It boasts the Gilles Peterson Worldwide award-winning song ‘Believe In Me’, a mid-tempo spacious, smokey soul-funk song reminiscent of Sly & The Family Stone grinding away into the era of 2022. The sheer majestic vibesmosphere that emanates through this deep cutting record will leave you loitering around the reload button.
When all is said and done, just listen to Colonel Red sing. The power and sound of his sultry, ripping voice, will mesmerize you into poetic submission. "Within each song, a powerful message seeks to transmit".
