Bodi: Clotho [Single]

Bodi- Clotho“Clotho is the sister of fate responsible for spinning the thread of human life. She also made major decisions, such as when a person was born, thus in effect controlling people’s lives. This power enabled her not only to choose who was born, but also to decide when gods or mortals were to be saved or put to death. This song is about cutting those strings, controlling our own destiny, and walking our own path.” – Bodi

Music is obviously an extremely powerful act of nature.  The pains of torment and torture can released with the ease of a needle when it comes to putting lyrics to a backdrop of noise and comfort.  And even if you aren’t truly paying attention, you are tend to draw towards artists that you can truly relate to, even if it is in the saddest ways imaginable.  Artists like indie hip hop wordsmith Bodi are a perfect example.  This is a guy who is not afraid to put his entire existence out on a pedestal for the world to judge.  And as sad is the lyrics can seem on his latest track “Clotho”, they are also very touching and insightful.

The line between self pity and self realization can sometimes be extremely thin and almost unrecognizable.  Resting souly on the nape of the latter is “Clotho”.  This is a beautifully crafted song about the changes we are forced to embrace and take with the “truest form of spirit”, to quote Bodi himself.  Listening to this guy can bring you to a strange paradox within your own mind.  At one juncture, you want to see this man blow up to be the biggest thing since processed cheese, amongst all the other processed cheese.  On another level, it’s the personal level in which you share with his lyrics and soul that make you want to take him into your own world, and steal all of his wisdom for your own.  Knowing this would be selfish of course, and that his words should be shared with all.

Bodi- Clotho2So listen to “Clotho” with the exact realization that this is a man who wishes to inspire you.  A song like this about love and loss and triumph and fall should serve as an inspiration for you to do better.  Maybe even to love one another.  Maybe to decide if the path you have chosen the path you were meant to be on.  If you can listen to “Clotho” and still come to the realization that you are scaling the mountain that was supposed to be your life, then you are probably right.  Let Bodi inspire you.  You absolutely will not regret it.

Check out “Clotho” right HERE, and be on the lookout for the release of Bodi’s full length LP, The Fall of Atlas, available February 26th 2013.
