King Avriel – Judgment Day/Valley Idols

blame it on Meka May 21, 2014

This is the second offering from Avriel’s upcoming album, which now has a title: thesis. A few choice words from her:

“The idea for the song came to me during a prisoner’s dilemma simulation in one of my classes. It reminded me of how, when I was younger, I tended to look out for others at my own expense in those kinds of situations. On surface level, it’s about me taking the blame for an imaginary crime I committed with a partner. However, it is ultimately a metaphor for a more personal lived experience, how I covered up my uncertainty with a false sense of righteousness when making a tough decision, and the faith I drew on to help me find solace.”
