In Tinashé Fazakerley’s newest single, he is haunted by biology. No one can stop the process of “becoming” one of their parents, no matter how much they fight it. Yes, we are all our own people, but there will be similarities that surprise us as we grow older. “Prodigal Son” is a song of searching: discovering a personal path that allows you to hone the deepest, most telling part of you. Unlike many of the songs made popular these days, Fazakerley incorporates an impressive vocabulary in his lyrics. This is a fight to the soul, but it’s also about coming to terms with the fact that “I can’t deny…I’m just like you.” Under the new moniker, Rationale, Fazakerley has been compared to Tracy Chapman and Morrissey in terms of his vocal style. I think in this track, he channels Samuel T. Herring’s bellowing voice from Future Islands. The music in “Prodigal Son” also reminds me of Future Islands’ electronic sound with deep, bouncy synths and a static drum-beat. There is a lot of power in Fazakerley’s tone and style.

Check out the single! And stay tuned for his self-titled album in March.
