Bristol-based rapper and producer Blacksmith reflects on the good times in his new release titled "Best years." The track is an uplifting piece made up of lush guitar riffs, warm basslines and strings, and soft head-nodding drum grooves that blend with Blacksmith's laidback flow. As the title suggests, the rapper talks about the importance of looking at the bright side within the craziness and taking steps to make the best out of what is possible. He runs through a myriad of relatable situations and implores listeners to keep their heads up with lines like "running 'round in circles but forgot to chase your destiny/Your picture in my head now that is a painting we will never see."
The accompanying visual directed by The Candy Farm is a blend of performance shots and cut scenes of Blacksmith's hometown. It has a nostalgic and warm feel and serves as a perfect accompanying clip that accentuates the positive message in the song.
