Honestly, this is a stressful day for me, and I was searching for a shadow of peace in music, as usual, and I ran into this ethereal, serene, amazing song by On Planets.
The song title is Brief Pause, and it is an uncategorized song. It drifts towards electronic/sperimental music, but I can’t quite decipher it. But, whatever it is, I love it.
On Planets is a electronic music project started by Sean Wharton, from Vancouver, who started out on his SoundCloud publishing a Drake remix and of Headlines. Brief Pause, is actually his first proper track, where finally we are able to listen to his emotional and calming tone.
The song starts out with these clicks, that continue throughout all the song growing bigger and bigger. There is a climatic tension during the entire duration of the track, that makes it a poignant first single.
Wharton states that this song is about “…when self-reflection provokes the turbulent mixture of cold longing and bitter regret with the warmth of loving memories.” And I couldn’t have expressed it in a better way.
I honestly can’t wait to hear more from this novice in the song-writing field.
Always, always spread love xx
