Breaking the cycle. How’s that for a cliche? But we’ve all been there. Whether it’s having the wrong people in your life, feeling trapped by your own negative feelings, or just a simply bad habit you can’t seem to kick, everyone has fallen into a cycle at one point or another. That’s what makes Lane Simkins’ “Cycles” so resonant. It’s about those times when you’re caught in a loop and can’t quite figure out what needs to change. Simkin’s vocals are appropriately raw and emotive, utilizing both ends of his range without compromising control or feeling. The instrumental is organic and simple, with fingerstyle style guitar played alongside a simple kit and piano, while some organ adds some country flair. The final product is just what Simkins claims: genuine, relatable storytelling done simply and with honesty.
