The Ongoing Concept - “You Will Go”
Written by: Lexie
In this day and age, it seems like EVERYTHING has been possibly created with music — but that’s where you’re wrong! The Ongoing Concept manages to incorporate a common lyrical theme into a uniquely orchestrated song. If you’re looking to spice up your playlist, “You Will Go” may be just the edge you need!
The song itself is incredibly dynamic — it’s as if several unique pieces have been welded together into one cohesive track. The sound is a wild ride, as it takes you from upbeat-toned verses, to heavy choruses, and back. Because of this unique structure and sound, the song has something for everyone. Lyrically, it’s about how life and experiences shape you into the person you eventually become, which itself can be a hectic journey — making the accompanying music all the more appropriate.
The video highlights the struggle that comes with shaping ourselves with depictions of solitude. We see the lead singer roaming alone outside, seeming to find (figuratively and literally) a path. He is contemplative, and a bit distressed. The uncertainty seems to be eased when he reaches the rest of his band — having found his direction.
Be sure to check out the video for yourself on Solid State Records’ YouTube channel! If you like what you hear, the song will be featured on The Ongoing Concept’s upcoming album, “Places,” which is due to be released on October 6th!
