Review: Symmetry – Junky

Review: Symmetry – Junky

This is the first single from Rhode Island singer/songwriter and producer, Symmetry, and the title track from his album, ‘Junky’. There are a lot of songs out there that deal with personal accounts of drug addiction, but few do it so humbly and insightfully as this track.

Symmetry guides us through how he grew up around drugs and eventually began experimenting through peer pressure and curiosity, until the overdose and death of a close friend. The instrumental starts with a deceivingly low produced guitar before breaking into strings and piano, building up gracefully and perfectly matching the mood of the lyrics. ‘Junky’ is the title track from his latest album, which is available for stream here.
