Trickster Guru – The Soul Searching Of A Songwriter
Catchy, and addictive, as fresh as a summer breeze
This is the kind of song to make you scream ‘Aw what a feeling’
Feeling life, feeling good, Feel the (Holy) Spirit.
Trickster Guru’s single out of his EP ‘Problem Child’ is getting a lot of attention, featured on NPR’s KCRW.
The interesting part of it is the topic it addresses as it reflects the spiritual seeking and psychedelic culture of Los Angeles while addressing, through its narrative, the heart-breaking realism of the city.
Feel The Spirit, as well as the EP itself offers a deep lecture.
Before the lyrics and stories, the instrumentation tells a lot already.
The keyboard, or rather the organ gives a connotation quite religious, and calls the spirituality of the song.
The uptempo leads us to move along song as warm as catchy
This warmth in the instrumentation added to the Spirit lexical field (Holy Ghost, Holy Spirit, Feel the Spirit) implies the theme of the song and the whole EP:
Soul searching, or spirituality seeking.
The song besides, gets as powerful as a Hozier’s ‘Take Me To Church’, putting a spell on the listener.
Psychedelic, intriguing, dark, realism, and passion
These words are to define the project “Problem Child”.
The “Problem Child” EP, produced with Christopher Caplan, features mastery from Nick Stratton, Jason Aguja, and Dylan Fenley.
Trickster Guru reveals “the new EP was a way of coming to terms with my past – artistically, emotionally and spiritually.”
Finally this track reflects trickster Guru’s originality, standing in his choice to make innovation in music
Making alternative rock, fused with soul and electronic synth.
“Problem Child” draws influence from rock anthem greats such as The Doors and Jeff Buckley as well as modern electronic artists such as Flume and Skrillex.
The added synths and beats from alternative electronic co-producer AWAY, allows Trickster Guru to ingeniously create a sound of passion, culture and indulgence.
