US producer/songwriter AB001 (real name Sandro) just released his debut single "Beauty Sleep", a couple of days before the excesses of New Year's resolutions and parties.
AB001 composed a feeling of soft morning sunshine coming through the window and the freshness of a quiet mind. We could only put value on sleeping while being awake, as we go about our days, simultaneously shaping the hours as the equivalent of the no sleep or the beauty sleep effects we feel. We must start realising the importance of taking time out, practicing awareness and self-care, especially after going through a transformation or ground breaking changes in our lives, in order to complete them and evolve. In the case of Sandro, evidently this was the period after dropping out of his music NYU degree and starting over completely anew on the other side of the continent.
Is this song about the time you take to settle down before your new life starts?
You pretty much hit the nail on the head as far as the meaning of the song goes. It's the transitioning of past lives into new ones, in my case the grit of New York City to the slow daze of California and also matters of relationships coming and going.
AB001 is releasing his first EP in Spring 2019 so be all ears for the journey ahead.
