Cerakai - I Feel (song review) |self-released, 2015|

If you're looking for an extremely memorable track here's one which is pretty short and has massive hit potential. "I Feel" talks about the importance of understanding the world around you with your heart and soul, not just with cold logic, as expressed in the lyrics: "We believe only what our eyes can see / We don't believe how to feel no more". The downside of an industrialized society is that when someone turns out to be sensitive and uses their feelings rather than the brain or acquired skills, the less empathetic but ego-driven people unfairly judge such an individual as 'weak'. Though, said empaths are a step further - feelings help humans connect with nature, since they come from it, and this link had never ceased to exist. When we go to a forest, we first feel its energy, then our brains recognize colors and sounds, yet all these are frequencies. The living Earth feels our actions, not just physically, but on an energetic level too, thus we must care for this meaningful relationship.

UK based Cerakai's "I Feel" addresses this subject through feisty, dynamic arrangements and an emotional performance. The track opener already gives listeners a taste of the chorus. The rebellious rocking mood turns subtle when the first fire is put out. Technically, the shift between verse and chorus is extremely well synchronized. The verse arrangement is reminiscent of 80s Punk, and New Wave judging by the melodic guitars and recognizable, slightly melancholic vocals.
Cerakai knows well how to serve tension by changing the tempo. Here, it also includes a mix of vocals and a random drum beat, both of which intensify during intersections between verses and the chorus. The voice then turns into a temperamental scream while the instrumental arrangements continue, joined by bass and guitar.

With such a track, Cerakai may reach out to Greenpeace or any other legal ecological organization about its placement on a various artists compilation album (in case they have another musical project to be announced). Undoubtedly, "I Feel" will be a perfect match, with its intense, rebellious vibe and the main theme referring to humanity's increasing ignorance towards its natural environment. It's enough to mention that the pushy industrial society hasn't yet developed any affordable and successful ways to let the entire population escape Earth in case of a global, man-made catastrophe. Hopefully, "I Feel" will raise the awareness of its subject matter among music fans.
