LA-based singer and actor, Chris Waters released a new song titled ‘As It Seems’ at the end of October which marked a significant milestone in his journey so far. This single was his first original release in over a year (as opposed to covers) and also the first time he has rapped on a track.
‘As It Seems’ goes back and forth between melodic choruses and “angry raps” which show off Waters’ dynamic range. The content of his lyrics covers topics such as a having a dual identity on social media and the paltry income gained from music these days. How he frames his thought and structures it in the track almost verges on spoken word poetry, but it lends to a very honest dialogue about what many people are facing right now.
As the social media and music landscape continue to grow and shift, songs like ‘As It Seems’ serves as an important marker for where we are at in this period of time. Chris Waters has very evidently been deliberating on these topics at length and they come across very powerfully in this latest single.
