Blank Slate by Headrush: Review
Jack Warren, the mastermind behind “Headrush” yearns for a fresh start in his catchy new anthem Blank Slate.
The artist himself describes the song as “the feeling of throwing you cap in the air at graduation” and it reflects in the lyrics. What the event represents: being tired of the grind, the same place, the same faces, day in and day out– looking forward to leaving it all behind to start anew; this is something we can all relate to but yet we cannot rush it. It will happen in due time so we keep on going but in the meantime we feel trapped and fatigued by the repetition and the meaninglessness. This song is a perfect artistic expression of this amalgamation of feelings.
Jack starts the song with a catchy hook over a faint guitar that builds up right away and joined by the full arsenal of instruments instantly grabbing the attention of the listeners and keeping them captivated all throughout the song. The composition gives you a sudden jolt of energy that when he sings, “Are you trying to leave? (Yeah)” you really feel like taking a sprint blasting the song in your ears in full volume.
