Untold Poet wears his heart on his sleeve on his latest release, ‘Don’t Understand’.
It is a release which speaks about current society with Untold Poet expressing how the world is unfair with prejudice and inequality. He is the spokesman for goodwill, and he stands up for everyone who is suffering. His delivery is mesmerising, and he captivates with his straight to the point technique.
His spoken word is unforgettable with his rap performance hitting the nail on the head. Innovative with his approach, he stands out, and he rises to the top instantly with his direction hitting at one of the most unusual times in modern history. It is not just about COVID-19 either with Untold Poet speaking about a topic which existed well before the pandemic and an issue which will most likely still exist well into the future unless we all make a stand and change.
Musically, the piano lead is warm with an arrangement which brings serenity to the soundscape. It has a gentle aura with an ethereal style which adds even more potency to the emotional track. The beat though has a surprising feel given that it does not follow the set pattern for modern rap. It is unique for this track, as it brings a poppy Latin vibe, but it is a wise choice because it keeps the flow moving forward. Additionally, many sounds appear in the mix’s back end, and each note adds even more weight to the already comprehensive mix.
Overall, the mindset which Untold Poet has is inspirational. So much so, if more people adopted the same thoughts, the world would be a better place.
