Recently, I've noticed that my generation—typically, young twentysomethings at the precipice of adulthood—has, with increasing frequency, replaced the sentiment of love and human interaction with technology and premium Wi-Fi. The convenience of the internet bringing instant fulfillment to our fingertips has long eroded the patience necessary to build and believe in a relationship. I often wonder if all hope is lost. Today, though, my faith was reassured and restored by Dallas-born, Las Vegas-based singer Norvis Junior's new song "Believers."
Insightfully comforting and uncomplicated lyrics—trust me, faith and patience are key—drift across dissonant chords and jazz horns, creating a soul-touching milieu to lose yourself in. Junior controls every aspect of the song—from the production and singing to the recording and engineering—which allows him to paint a one-of-a-kind portrait: one that is as refreshing as it is unpredictable. His new album, Pyrrhic Victory Disc 03 drops tomorrow via Tape Club Records.
