Featured Song: Vowl. – Bounce Back.
Today comes a reminder of the nature of life, in all its cruelty and unpredictability, but also the indomitable strength of the human condition. Inverloch, Australia-based producer vowl. had some very sad news to share a few days ago (which I will refrain from paraphrasing but can be found in the track description of “bounce back”).
And yet, from a moment of darkness and passing comes light and re-birth; from a moment of sadness comes a sense of renewed appreciation for all that we cherish and hold dearly – and a much-needed reminder of how lucky we are to co-exist on this imperfect blue dot somewhere in the vastness of the cosmos. In spite of all the evil and grief which seemingly pervades our modern age, moments like this are a reminder of the unshakable conviction of intestinal fortitude.
Put simply, this song, with its lovely, lush future synth chord progression, gorgeous instrumental melodies, punchy 808s, delicate drum fills, and breathtaking samples of a young child and their parents, will at once leave you speechless, tearing up, smiling, and deeply introspective. Our deepest condolences to vowl. in this tough time and our utmost respect for creating such beauty from such sorrow. 26/6/2016 <3
