Russell Taylor hasn’t been gracing us with his passion and energy for a minute now. I mean, album and single wise, his voice has been missing. His album Confessions still gets play to this day. Russell’s energy is tangible and his vocals are aggressive and raw. Needless to say, hearing his new single “War of Hearts” from his IndigoBlue Music label, is music to my ears. The title of the single also happens to be the name of the full-length album. The track was inspired by everyone’s weekly habit – the television show Scandal– and the painstaking task of dealing with feelings from a complicated relationship. Olivia Pope can surely cheer to that.
What we have here on “War of Hearts” is a song that can be added to a tailored scene of deep-rooted passion, agonizing pain, emotional turmoil and loss. You know, the type of song you can get a good cry out with. I’m sure you Scandal fans have already placed it in a scene that you have envisioned. Russell’s delivery is pretty much effortless, giving us just what we need with no extras. It’s a love vs hate ride that we usually do not have a choice or say in, but end up taking a part in nonetheless. Take a listen for yourself:
Press Play on “War of Hearts”:
