“Only” is a soulful self-produced track by singer/songwriter Willis. The record dives into the concept of taking decisions no matter how the situation plays out and it’s quite alluring. From the somber and moody textures peppered by Willis’ melodic runs and evocative lyrics, listeners can feel the emotions with each line. He is joined by singer Ahriel who adds a female perspective to the topic.
