Victoria, BC-based artist Adrian Chalifour is back with his sophomore single, “The Collapse“, showcasing a more vulnerable side of himself; demonstrating raw emotion with a poignant vocal performance and striking songwriting.
“The Collapse is a song about loss and the helplessness that precedes it. That might mean a lot of different things to different people, and even means different things to me depending when and in what context I listen to it. But I can tell you when I first wrote it, it was about the loss of life. My community has lost a lot of good men this past year. Men I grew up with. Men my age: fathers, husbands and business owners with lives and legacies; men we didn’t expect to lose. I thought about what those last moments must have been like, when you realize there’s no coming back. I thought about what their last words might have been – what my last words might be – were there a chance to share them. This song helps me remember who they were and what they left behind.”
