From pleasant percussion to dreamy synth plucks and touching vocal samples, "Belong" by Seattle-based music producer blinds paints a musical picture through a rich palette of emotions.
The dark drone ambiance of the pad grounds the track and gives it its signature melancholic feel, while the lyrics of the vocal samples contrast this pensive vibe by conveying a certain hope and sense of fulfillment. The diverse percussion hits complement the slightly off-beat melodies, played higher up in the register, giving the whole song an uplifting touch.
blinds' heartfelt sound isn't a coincidence though - the intention behind this gorgeous downtempo electronica track is really pure and meaningful:
"This song was made during a time of uncertainty in my life, where I chose to pursue music over other potential life goals. It's a song about sacrifice, yet hopeful that I made a choice for my future that makes me feel more whole as an individual. Every day is filled with choices, and I find myself passing up all my options as the days move along, in pursuit of the ability to speak fluently through sound."
Stream "Belong" now and remember that it's worth it to challenge yourself and to be bald sometimes.
