Armlock – “Power Of A Waterfall”

Armlock – “Power Of A Waterfall”

Simon Lam of Kllo and Nearly Ontario has paired up with Hamish Mitchell for a new project called Armlock, which has a lo-fi emo sound akin to Wicca Phase Springs Eternal. Their first single, “Power Of A Waterfall,” from their forthcoming album Trust, captures this similarity; Lam’s vocals are as bleak and cynical as Adam McIlwee’s.

The duo says the song is about “the general narrative of your adulthood that’s drilled in from a young age, and the relentless boredom that comes from fulfilling that prophecy … how mundane things cascade you into a kind of madness.” The track echoes with that monotony, the dreary pace hyperbolizing the cyclical nature of life. The lyrics consist mostly of vague mantras: “Personal truth/ Personal truth/ Personal truth/ Power of a waterfall.”
