Milli On’s sound is always a pleasure to write about – the warmth of the music, the passion and skill showcased in the instrumentation and the leading vocals, the melodies – it all just works, it fits and brightens up your day. “Might” is no exception, the opening verse presents that organic musicality and the emotionally vibrant voice that drives the song’s story-line with subtle strength. The higher notes of the first part of the verse start things off boldly, then the slip down to the lower moments pave the way for the hip hop soundscape – a brilliant touch that always adds so much realness to a release.
The title of this release alone is enough to open the mind or at the very least overwhelm it enough to provoke curiosity. As the piece begins to play, there’s a hypnotic and rhythmic outpouring of sound and notes that prove to be the familiar threads holding it all together. To break it down to the building blocks that made it though, is to realize quite how unexpected or uncommon each sound and synth actually is.
Listening to this track is like slowly walking deeper and deeper into an unexplored cave, with only a dim light – that easily recognisable riff – to guide you. The further you wander, the greater the fear grows, but at the same time – somehow – the more comforted by your surroundings you become. The unknown gets more and more vast, the familiar world falls further behind you, but you start to befriend this new realm of audio and thought – so much so that when it all comes to an end, you’re not quite ready to leave yet.
After the set-up, you’re lost in the hip hop soundscape, As the audience you can feel it all – the energy, the good vibes. Listen on and maybe a second and third time though, that hook is left with you for quite some time – it’s a simple gathering of notes, descending slightly again, leaving a small void at the end of the line to make sure your mind has absorbed it. Then of course, the more you think about those rap words, the more the story-line intrigues you – all of the details you may have missed the first time around, thanks to a beautifully authentic soundscape; you want to dig a little deeper now.
At its core, the song has a simple composition. It uses the amazing vocals, the soundscape in a solid combination that promises you a good time, and delivers. What gives the song its edge is undoubtedly Milli On’s rap vocals. His voice is strong. The song demands that he dip in and out of several high and low notes, and he does it with flair and also His voice has an individuality that’s unmistakable.
