Joshua Crumbly Returns with New Single, “Reflection”
After releasing his solo debut earlier this year, bassist and composer Joshua Crumbly has returned with a new single called “Reflection.” The song, which is accompanied by a video, carries the same weight as the music from Rise.
“I was in a very pensive mood with everything going on in the world and wrote this song while the news was playing in the background,” Crumbly says. “The progression allowed me the space to brood in my thoughts and feelings as well as brought me to a more hopeful place the more I played it. The video is meant to symbolize holding on to that small glimmer of light and finding one’s own belief that we are going to get through this. I think there’s been a tremendous focus on the ‘rage’ and similar emotions of this time, but not enough on the moments of unity worldwide. The protest photos/footage is from all over the world: the Netherlands, Manchester (UK), NYC, and Los Angeles. The global awareness & togetherness, as well as family, has given me something to hold onto. Maybe we’ll all truly see ourselves in one another one day. I hope to have captured the ‘bittersweetness’ of the time but also hopefully convey an uplifting message, both sonically and visually that leaves room for your own ‘Reflection.’”
