Toronto rapper DijahSB, has shared their latest single, “New Balance.” The song Follows the release of their Polaris Music Prize-shortlisted album Head Above the Waters. Of the track, DijahSB shares: “‘New Balance’ is my way of being clever and playing on the brand name but also highlighting not always being balanced but still keeping it together.”
Head Above the Waters was produced by Harrison, whose previous credits include working alongside Jon Hopkins, Cashmere Cat, Ryan Hemsworth and more, ‘New Balance’ marries wobbling synth chords and shuffling percussion with DijahSB’s “Anderson .Paak-like flow and witty bars, casually tossing off complex rhyme schemes.”
Ever earnest and open about their struggles with depression, mental health and financial instability, DijahSB balances their candid and frank storytelling with lyricism that is always playfully dexterous – an abiding belief in continual growth and the potential of life’s small victories – that is inspirational but never didactic. Their music serves as a balm; a friend bearing battle scars, talking you through all of their myriad hopes, breakthroughs and heartbreaks in the hope that it might soothe your own. To this end, ‘New Balance’ feels like a victory lap of sorts, DijahSB finding acceptance and contentment in their capacity to continue carrying on.
