Anyone who’s ever had to navigate the predicament of whether they should withstand or surrender can find meaning in heavy duo Worth The Wait‘s latest single “Blackwater”.
After a hiatus and development of a more clear musical persona, Dakota Rose and Joseph Kovacs have delivered an entirely self-produced track.
Abstractly expressing feelings of hopelessness and escapism surrounding dissolution, listeners are free to take the dilemma presented in “Blackwater” however it resonates with their personal strife.
“Blackwater” brings a mildly futuristic twist to traditional and downright heavy metalcore sounds, with the track revolving around a central ear-catching riff. Utilizing a jump between openly spoken and aggressive vocal styles, the song’s bridge better illustrates the thematic conundrum within the lyrics.
“[I] “grew tired of listening to music about sadness, fear, depression, anxiety, hatred, and shortcomings. While I deal with anxiety and depression every day and enjoy these bands, it’s not something I want to constantly relive or bask in.”
— Dakota Rose (vocalist)
