Musicians often write about the creative process itself, and sometimes about the emotions that can elicit; but rarely is it done as beautifully as Kini Solana’s Just Art – check it out below.
Lyrically unadorned and slightly ambiguous, Solana initially leaves a little doubt in the listener’s mind as to whether she is reflecting on music or a love lost. Who’s to say that creating a piece of art isn’t akin to having a relationship anyway?
The brooding but melodic ambiance to the arrangement is in perfect sympathy with the lyrics, leaving the listener to Just Art feeling like they’re had a glimpse in to the soul of the artist.
She describes Just Art as being “A song about the emotional struggle of the artist. I describe the frustration that comes with being a creative person and wanting to do what you love all the time, while also feeling the pressure of reality and the financial demands that can put the passion on hold.”
