D.C.-based musician Mychael Wright, or WRYT, confronts the loss that each of us are guaranteed to experience in life with his new single, “Fierce,” which was released on April 15.
Its lyric video places us in a serene ocean scene as the listener is faced with WRYT’s powerful guitar and reflective lyrics that emulate the emptiness we can feel inside.
“There is that consistent anger and disappointment that our loved ones will not be able to experience all that life has to offer,” Mychael says. The chorus pleads with the listener: “You could have seen the way we were,” as this retrospective fear of life’s incompleteness takes hold.
He attempts to find and offer the answers to life’s questions: “Who and what do we leave behind, and how do those left create a life that is persistently searching for the missing piece?”
While “Fierce” can be considered a triumphant ballad on overcoming grief, it is more of “a message that sits with the sorrow and attempts to process the new reality.”
WRYT carries us through, “I know this lasts for today but tomorrow’s so far away.”
