Song name; Pushing a train up a mountain.
“Pushing a train up a mountain” is from Profe Fool soon-to-be released album Bleak Psychedelia. Profe fool has a distinct sound, intertwining rock and hip-hop. They displayed this clearly with this song, though I would say it sounded more rock than hip-hop with its heavy beats and rhythm.
The basic bass, drums and plaintive guitar is indicative of rock music,but by the time the main vocalist begins rapping we get the hip-hop/rock feel we never knew we needed.
“I can’t seem to get away” this opening verse is one that many people can relate to on different levels but most especially emotionally. The lyrics were original, meaningful and adequately conveyed the sentiment of dealing with internal conflicts which most of us can resonate with. This song has a melancholic ring to it.
The lead vocalist has a distinctive voice and tone but is drowned out a number of times by the powerful instrumentation. The lyrics seem quite interesting, but can’t always be heard clearly because of the poor vocal-instrumental balance. Though the flow of words are quite enjoyable regardless.
Overall the song can be improved with a better vocal-instrument balance,but it’s still quite distinctive and original. It is certainly worth a listen especially for those who love listening to rock or rap music – this song gives you the best of both worlds and I’m sure you wouldn’t be disappointed.
With their new album Bleak Psychedelia in the works you can certainly expect more music from this band. They’re certainly worth watching out for in the rock/rap scene.
