Multi-genre and local Philly artist, A Day Without Love, (a.k.a. Brian Walker) is sharing the first part of a two-part EP titled, WTF. Perfectly mixed with his truest passions and opinions, A Day Without Love (ADWL) explores the black communities injustices, the Black Lives Matter movement, along with his views and beliefs on how imperative this years election will be.
WTF Part 1’s track “Mission” is strong and intense with some incredible introspective lyrics. ADWL says that this track’s main purpose is to “showcase [his] multi-genre talent and to display that all artists,” and to share with his community, and beyond, that artists, “especially black artists do not have to be pigeonholed” when it comes to their craft.
Some of the other tracks like “They’ll March When We Die” showcase his progressive attitude towards the state of our country. He shares his beliefs best with his lyric “Control my narrative, cuz that’s imperative…”
His final track for this first part of the WTF EP is “First Class For Every Class” and features local Philly artist, Bloomer.
ADWL shares stories that need to be told, and raises awareness of issues that are affecting, not only the local community, but affecting the lives of so many Black people right now. While we can’t just wish away all the pain, all the disrespect and outrageous treatment of these minority groups, we can start by having these kinds of conversations in our local areas, and he’s doing just that.
WTF Part 2 will be out on October 26th so be sure to stay in the loop, and always remember to support your local music scene!
