rx Soul – “Cyclical”

MVC_8413_edited

 

rx Soul returns with his seventh consecutive single “Cyclical”, a track about “getting caught in a repetitive cycle of behavior patterns, not quite knowing how to break it.” rx Soul is carefully carving a place for himself musically, consistently releasing flawlessly produced tracks and vocals that are powerful, direct, and tender. He’s caught our attention and we await what comes next.

 

From Phoenix, Arizona, rx Soul grew up between the homes of divorced parents. As a teenager, he had a close brush with death at the peak of Tucson’s Mount Lemmon, which he calls “an experience of true, animal fear.” This event, which gave him a conscious appreciation for simply being alive, along with his growing love of music like The Weeknd’s Trilogy and Frank Ocean’s Channel Orange, changed his views on songwriting. He shifted his focus from writing exclusively about love and heartbreak to telling stories about the very human and often dark experiences that give life such depth. When asked about the name “rx Soul,” he points to the tendency he’s noticed in himself and others to self-medicate, taking the quick, surface level approach to a problem instead of challenging the root cause head-on…exactly what he intends to do with his music.
