“IKYWTL” is the type of track that I’d imagine listening to in a natural setting, like an open field or by the sea right before dawn. Found on the album aptly named Before Dawn by Quiet Blue, it carries a spatial and transcendent feeling.
The piece leads in with gentle vocals on top of soft keys, percussive elements and rhythmic snaps before it progresses into a layered and mesmerising electronic sound.
Behind the music is Nic Georgiou, who is a singer from Melbourne and under the alias Quiet Blue creates an atmospheric and emotive sound somewhere between folk, ambient and electronica.
“IKYWTL is about two people being stuck in the comfortability of a failing relationship. Sometimes its harder to walk away from something you know isn’t right than it is to stay in the false warmth you find in another person.”- Quiet Blue
