I’d like to return your attention to a throwback release by Brad Urba named “Carry My Stone”. It is a powerful and motivational piece with parallels to cinematic music. The singer’s deeply emotional delivery sits well with the vulnerable lyrics.
Urba explains: “… I wrote this song inspired by the story of Sisyphus, a Greek king who was punished by Zeus and forced to push a giant boulder up a massive hill only to have the boulder roll back down every time he neared the top.“
The dramatic drum pattern, coupled with the hazy synths, gives the track its gripping edge.
