‘Fantasize’ is a grandiose rant in which Arlen airs his discontentment with his station in life as well as the socio-political climate at the time of his writing, while defiantly daring to dream big. He began writing the song during his gruelling tenure in medical school when he truly began questioning his purpose in life. Fantasize allowed for a bit of frivolous escapism from what, at the time, felt like the harshness of his reality. Lesroy ‘A.P.’ Byers of the Oakville Collective captures perfectly in the production, the sentiment of Arlen’s hopeful helplessness.
ANA SHINE shares her latest single, ‘Can’t Stop The Rain’, which sees the multi-talented songstress veering down a slightly different route form her emotively compelling ballads as heard in previous efforts, ‘Goodbye’, ‘Freedom’ and ‘Be Yourself’.
The latest single creates a nostalgic feel with its 80s-inspired bluesy soul tones, where Ana’s voice, once broods with raw emotion, adopts a soft-retro soulful vibe, recounting the moments of a love she once lost.
