Single Review: Bleary – “Weeknight (Sever, Pt. 3)”

Bleary is a rapper and singer/songwriter based in Portland, Oregon. The hip-hop artist — well into a decade of his musical pursuit — decided to go full-time after surviving what would have been a fatal blow to the head. With a new lease on life, he prioritizes a multi-genre, experimental foundation, often drawing from personal anecdotes that have left a profound effect on his well-being. Fresh off his debut album, Bad Days, Bleary punctuates his output for the new decade with the trilogy-capping single, “Weeknight (Sever, Pt. 3).”

Whereas the first two acts in the album deal with the initial pain and processing of a hindered relationship, the third centers around healing. The song’s primary arrangement immediately captivates with a subtly hard-hitting, yet tranquil downtempo groove. Bleary isn’t afraid to express a kind of openness that relates to disenchantment, and subsequently, acceptance, of his newfound circumstances. As a result, there seems to be a personable link between Bleary’s walk-on-eggshells rap approach during the verses, and his otherwise forthright, untethered tonality of the chorus. Ultimately, the single represents one of the album’s many vignettes that demonstrate growth, which is expressed seamlessly throughout.

About Jake Kussmaul

I come from a family who is passionate about all things music. I learned to sing at an early age, and by 13, had my very own Fender Strat guitar. I tried my hardest at learning all that I could. Because I was born with cerebral palsy, I had to teach myself an adaptive playing style. I learned to write and record my own music, despite these difficulties. In college, I started making great use of my writing abilities by reviewing music, as well as copy editing. I guess it's best to stick with what you know, while welcoming a fair challenge at the same time.
