When does a picture explain it all? When the explanation isn’t verbal at all, and when a persons’ body language is speaking loud and clear. For St. Domonick, his artwork for the single “Someone New” does just that. Inspired by a scene in the video “The Rain” by Oran “Juice” Jones, St. Domonick proves that he is knows about ‘real’ love and heartbreak. For which he lets you know in his song “Someone new” that this is not your puppy love type of track.
St. Domonick starts out the track ad-libing and almost imitating a horn that freestyles on a jazz beat. This further complements the jazz-like feel of the track, which he also picks back up with a similar ad-lib toward the end of the track.
In the first verse St. Domonick deals with a relationship that is rocky, to say the least. He expresses this in his use of the last four bars of the verse. “Cause when I look in your eyes. I swear you give me that vibe. But the feeling is Gone. Now the Feeling is Gone”.
The chorus features Tall Pockets singing in a faint-tone that is light and reminiscent of the Slum Village song “Tainted”. A true love, this chorus explores the intuition of knowing that the girl you love has another man, and the distant feeling you get when around her that only confirms this.
The 2nd verse St. Domonick starts to reminisce on his true love and the good times they had. Again finishing with “But the feeling is Gone. Now the Feeling is Gone”. A bonus of this verse is when St. Domonick pays homage to a legend, with a quote from Jay-Z’s “Song Cry”:
Shit I’m a man with pride, you don’t do shit like that
You don’t just pick up and leave and leave me sick like that
You don’t throw away what we had, just like that
I was just fuckin them girls, I was gon’ get right back
But wait, there’s more. The track ends with a sample from another legend Busta Rhymes’ song “You know I Got It”.
Whether you had a Jasmine or a Keisha, St. Domonick proves that sometimes it’s better to have love and lost. And sometimes a picture or more specifically St. Domonick’s track “Someone New” will explain it all.
