Inspired from epics such as the Lord of the Rings and evoking tales of eras long past, 'Ryu' sets the stage with a cinematic scene. As distant bells toll, a beautifully haunting piano motif rises from a damp fog. A brassy, syncopated lead melody rings out above the haze before igniting into a rumbling groove that builds toward an emotive second intermission.
Representing Taylor's 2017 return from the hectic chaos of New York City to his native California, 'Westward' drops into a frenetic first section, driven by buzzing synths and a percussive arpeggio. From a deep breakdown emerges a nostalgic melody, underscored by a punchy drumline snare that explodes into a chord progression that feels just like coming home.
