Amoeba Review

02/14/2019

Wicca Phase Springs Eternal is the project of Pennsylvania-based singer/songwriter Adam McIlwee. Though Suffer On could ostensibly be lumped in with “emo-trap,” it really is a more eclectic mix of styles than that somewhat kitschy genre name would suggest. What starts as straightforward balladry on “I Need Help,” a pretty good Bright Eyes pastiche for the first minute and a half, inexplicably mutates into something much stranger. With synth pads and programmed drums accentuating the woe-is-me vocals, the whole song turns into the most melancholy trap beat of all time. “I Wake Up In Pain” is witch house straight from 2010, overlaid with depressive musings (The “woe-is-me” bit earlier was no exaggeration, but literally a lyric from this song). “Just One Thing” is the closest thing resembling a traditional hip-hop song, only meaning that it sounds like someone took Gerard Way and drowned him in codeine and Future albums. “Crushed” is a strummy acoustic weeper…with no trap drums to be found. McIlwee might not be the first to merge these seemingly disparate sounds, as Lil Peep and Lil Uzi Vert both previously cracked open the door of possibility, but Suffer On kicks it down entirely.
