Say What- P.L-Praiselife
Spiritual fusion artist P.L- Praiselife’s new single Say What celebrates sticking to your convictions in the face of outside doubt as part of the mission to spread God’s word. Imbued with the faith and confidence of gospel music, Say What shows P.L’s distinctive experimentation and breakdown of genre boundaries in a new style which he calls Spiritual Fusion . Whilst many songs in the popular sphere celebrate being oneself and individuality, Say What connects this to a higher power and the duty that those following this path have to not be led astray by social pressure.
The first single from his upcoming EP Where Would We Go, Say What is lead by a hook which blends subtly with its rhythm; it is a sonic collage of genres, including downtempo, electronic, RnB, and gospel, as well as including his producer Bamrockcity’s signature style of genre-fusion led music production. In previous projects, he had invented and experimented with another of his own styles which he termed TripHopSoul - and here, these early influences have grown into a more rounded and sophisticated sound which draws the listener to contemplate their own spiritual truths. In this way, it is not only the lyrics which celebrate the power and intensity of his spiritual path- musically, Say What is rousing, uplifting, and inspiring, with the emotional legacy of the gospel tradition combined with more modern genres.
The link between P.L ‘s music and spirituality is evident in how he suffered from writers block until digging deeper into his spiritual beliefs about the world. Now he wants to share them through his music, however Say What places just as much importance on the creation of new musical possibilities as it does on the lyrical message. Overall, this is a modern day spiritual anthem which draws from multiple influences to bring life to the soul and a great beat to your favorite playlist.
