I've finally released my new single called ''Drowning''! :)
I'm very happy to finally release this on the internet after three months of hard work. It was written to be part of the upcoming album ''Making Waves''.
I started writing this song about three months ago. At that time, it seemed like all the work was just piling up without pause which caused a kind of writer’s block. I decided to write about it in order to break the block. The lyrics of the song describe one’s ambition faltering due to the huge amount of effort it costs while feeling the pressure of time. A clear example of this can be heard in the second verse: ‘‘I let determination lose to every drop of water that overflows’’. Flooding water is a recurring theme in the song which is a metaphor for his situation.
The idea of water overflowing can be heard in the arrangement as well. There’s a distinct difference between the verses and the chorus. In the verse you’ll hear drops of water in the background and sounds which give you a sense of being underwater. Once the chorus kicks in, the song washes over you like a tidal wave. This effect is created by the sheer amount of instruments that can be heard, including a choir, electric guitar and a distorted taiko drum. By the time the final chorus starts, the song transposes to a higher key to further emphasize this effect. By then, the raindrops will have made way for a heavy thunderstorm, which symbolizes the pressure being too much.

Lots of love, :)
