Single of The Day: The Fray – The Fighters 

Released by: Sony Music Indonesia

Ketika mendengar track Over My Head pertama kali, sejak itu saya jatuh cinta pada vokal Isaac Slade. Salah satu vokal yang mempunyai rupa begitu sendu tapi mampu memancarkan semangat positif. Apa yang membuat orang jatuh cinta dengan The Fray? Selain lirik yang kuat, musiknya juga khas dengan iringan piano di beberapa lagu. Tapi ciri khas itu tidak terdengar di track ini.

The Fighter hadir dalam balutan sound band utuh dari awal sampai akhir. Dominasi drum yang menghentak serta gitar yang mengalun dari awal memberi intro yang tepat, kemana arah track ini akan dibawa. Semangat itu makin terasa di bagian reffrain. Ini lagu tentang memperjuangkan cinta teman!

Teringat dengan How To Save a Life, salah satu keistimewaan Isaac adalah kemampuannya untuk melakukan storytelling dari setiap kisah. Dia pelan-pelan bercerita dan membuat kita menyimak. Seperti satu jalinan utuh yang mencapi klimaksnya di bagian bridge, What breaks your bones, Is not the load you’re carryin’, What breaks you down, Is all in how you carry.

Inilah inti cerita The Fighter, ketika seseorang tahu apa yang harus dilakukannya dengan cinta. Terdengar klise? Percayalah lirik Maybe we were meant to be on our own, Loneliness has always been with me, with me, Maybe we don’t have to be all alone tidak akan berlangsung seklise itu. Dengan optimisme vokal Isaac, seakaan memberi dukungan kepada mereka yang masih (kurang) percaya dengan cinta.

Satu yang pasti, musik The Fray semakin berdewasa. Tanpa meninggalkan sound dan ciri khas bermusiknya, mereka mencapai satu level baru. Dalam album Scars and Stories sendiri mereka mengatakan dengan gamblang ingin membuat suasana live senyata mungkin. Posisi Brendan O’ Briend sebagai produser pun menasbihkan suasana itu sepenuhnya. Inilah bentuk baru musik The Fray.

Menunggu tanggal perilisan album ini menjadi sangat mendebarkan. Kita akan mengetahui bagaimana rupa keseluruhan dari musik The Fray. Apakah benar mereka sukses berevolusi sejak meluncurkan debut album mereka? Kita tunggu saja. Cheers!

LYRIC
The lover held her love
She begged him not to go
The fighter wrapped his gloves
The fighter said I know, I know, I know
Just this one last time
I swear you’ll still be mine
But he can’t promise much
He goes for one last touch

Maybe we were meant to be lonely
Maybe we were meant to be on our own
Loneliness has always been with me
But maybe we don’t have to be all alone

The fighter goes inside
The doubt is creeping in
He swings with all his might
At all that might have been
And she’s in love with him
But lovers don’t always win
He never even saw the swing
She calls out his name

Maybe we were meant to be lonely
Maybe we were meant to be on our own
Loneliness has always been with me
But maybe we don’t have to be all alone

What breaks your bones
Is not the load you’re carrying
What breaks you down
Is all in how you carry

The lover held her love
She begged him not to go
She unwrapped his gloves
The lover said I know, I know, I know
Kissed his trembling lips
She touched fingertips
But somehow they both know
He’s not coming home

Loneliness has always been with me
Maybe we were meant to be on our own
But I got to try or it will destroy me
Cause maybe we don’t have to be all alone
