Queer artist Splendore is something of a musical triple threat, not only known for singing but also DJing and producing in the Italian music scene.
His latest track is about finding solace in the endless possibilities offered up by the internet, a connection to the worldwide web. Adjacent to the bubblegum sweet sounds of London’s PC Music collective, “Come Online” exudes a futuristic feel, one that kicks and squirms around digital synths and reverberated vocals like a bat out of hell. Sprinkled into the mix are doses of rock and spoken-rap, all served up in a musical cocktail that certainly packs a punch.
“I’ve suffered from depression for as long as I can remember,” Splendore explains of the track. “I’ve always struggled to be myself. I’ve always found it easier to be with someone else or at least with my phone and Netflix account. Even there, I always felt uncomfortable.”
“Come Online” echoes these experiences, channelling their pain and sadness into something happy and carefree. “Now I’m quite ok. I swear,” Splendore jokes. “So, fun time.”
