Si Knightly takes on Drill
Broken Cisterns (Single)
Following the success of his 2021 debut EP,The Third Day, and recent cinematic worshiptrack, Who Am I? Si Knightly shows there is no limit to his versatility as a rapper in his exciting new drill single,Broken Cisterns.
The track is Biblically inspired by the history of Israel’s relationship with God, and rooted in the famous metaphor from Old Testament prophet Jeremiah. Broken Cisterns explores and expounds the theme of idolatry, and God’s faithfulness to his repentant people, in the face of it.
In his signature style, Si Knightly takes listeners on a compelling journey through the track,
engaging them with his own faith story. His personal lyrics expose the futility of idolatry from
Si’s own experience, and testify to the unfailing grace of God, through the gospel of Jesus
Christ. Si’s rich theological lyricism, his trademark multi-syllable rhyme schemes and artistic vulnerability come together to create a unique and unforgettable drill single.
