While it may be Friday – meaning that the beckoning weekend will have most of you feeling ready to party – we are in the mood for a bit of reflection prior to this, and singer-songwriter byelian is here to help us with this! Dropping his new track, “whenever it’s too quiet”, the German singer-songwriter takes us on a tour through the world as seen by him, during which he realistically-yet-optimistically details that better days remain on the horizon – deep stuff, right? But, while this may be a message of hope, juxtaposition is offered through a gentle stream of acoustic instrumentation and vocals that are manipulated to sound ethereal, giving the track a slightly sad energy.
And, this melancholic tinge trickles into the track’s music video. With the artist and the video’s hero taking to a truly breathtaking landscape in search of the last ever tape on earth, the purity of life and wonders of the Earth’s landscape are celebrated simultaneously, invoking awe in those who watch.
A masterpiece worthy of the name, byelian’s latest project is one deserving of your attention.
