Alternative Rock/Pop act I, Alone–solo act of multi-instrumentalist Brandon Zastrow–has released the lyric videos for three of the singles off of the debut EP, Collateral Beauty. including the below “Good Fight.” Being the front-man, the main songwriter and the guitarist, Zastrow is becoming a visible and consistent alternative/rock artist garnering a lot of notice. Since the release of his debut EP Collateral Beauty on 8 December 2017, I, Alone has garnered quite the buzz for his unique blend of unexpected sounds.
“Good Fight was written from a nontraditional point of view compared to my typical writing perspective. I study Grammar and Language to greatly improve my lyrical content and really dive into the lyric. With focus on rhythm, rhyme, symbolism and metaphor, I take every line as its own cohesive expression. Ive found this most often leads to a relatable product that paints a picture in a dynamic fashion. Generally speaking, my songs begin as short stories and I pull from that to form a broad, but appropriate idea. However I wanted to do something different with ‘Good Fight.’ I wanted to be a bit more specific and concrete. During the writing process, I was overcome by the experience and promise of the EP. I wrote ‘Good Fight’ as a song that summarizes my journey through music. Yet still, it’s such a relatable song to so many. I hear all the time that listeners identify the content with overcoming bullying, finding self confidence and hope for the future. It truly is a feel good, I told you so, type of song.” – I, Alone
