Tanya Morgan - So Damn Down

There's a city far off; it only takes a few seconds to get there though. A place you could only imagine; yet, somehow it's one of the realest places you've been. That place is Brooklynati, a virtual city reachable by one click of a mouse. Listen to the soundscape of Brooklynati, USA by exploring the sights and sounds of the song "So Damn Down," by city architects Tanya Morgan from their upcoming sophomore LP of the same name. Surrounded by a deceptively cheery orchestral blend of melodic bass lines, soft French horns, and slow pulsing synths, the song has that comforting classic hip-hop feel to it.

However, don’t let the title of the song fool you into thinking this upbeat sounding song is full of hip-hop clichés about lyrical braggadocios; listen carefully to pick up on clues about the unspoken gritty truths of being an indie artist. Read between the lines and hear the word painting; if you don’t catch the underlying meaning on the first listen, give it another spin. Don't let it spoil your mood though, as Tanya Morgan's lesson is in perseverance, despite tough times. There’s no need to pack a suitcase because Brooklynati is as familiar to you as home.
