Fol­low­ing the release of his lead single ‘Flip Mode’ earli­er in May, CASA X hits back with a haunt­ingly poet­ic and lyr­ic­ally enthralling hip-hop track titled ‘Light­ing Fires’, fea­tur­ing vocals by RENNY SYMF.

Told through an intro­spect­ive lens, ‘Light­ing Fires’ is about the lows of a strug­gling artist. The track touches on themes such as fame and for­tune, along with broken rela­tion­ships and rehab.

Of the single CASA X says, “I want to give people an insight of what a strug­gling artist lives through. The highs and lows, the tor­ment of suc­cess, and to con­sider what the price of fame is really worth”.

After hear­ing the early pro­duc­tion from Mar­velouz Music, CASA X’s inten­tion was to depict a sense of anxi­ety that was run­ning from his past, which was later developed into the music video.

In an incred­ibly cine­mat­ic rep­res­ent­a­tion of what ‘Light­ing Fires’ is about, the accom­pa­ny­ing music video is a story driv­en por­tray­al with primary mean­ings of trans­form­a­tion and change. CASA X says, “we used mul­tiple sym­bol­ic trans­itions such as water to fire, indus­tri­al to nature, and dis­or­i­ented to a clear state, in order to show the rebirth of an artist.”

Hail­ing from Sydney, the ver­sat­ile hip hop artist is stead­ily gain­ing a repu­ta­tion for his lyr­ic­al excel­lence and humble storytelling. With­in the upcom­ing album ‘100FACES’, ‘Light­ing Fires’ unfolds as the emo­tion­al roller­coast­er that CASA X dis­plays along its jour­ney, which is slated for release later this year.
