Small Space, Big Theme

A song created in lockdown culture makes for the ultimate amalgamation of a stress I lived through every day — nothings happening and it’s all going downhill.

So there was a huge call for good mental health in the time of lockdown — a somewhat need for everyone to just kinda relax and breathe and just know things are gonna be OK and yet, as all humans do, we panicked and of course for all the right reasons…bad things were happening.

“More Than This” takes that exact moment, the “nothing is happening and it all is kinda terrible” moment, and evolves it just a few steps into the future, into the moment of, ” I think it’s gonna be OK” and further into the ” just hold on baby” mindset. It succeeds in making you feel like there is a light.

A breath of fresh air amidst the chaos of quarantine-themed content in music. Aimés’ “More Than This” is an uplifting, folky pop song that guarantees a smile.

It’s all About The Angst, Baby

The Percussion track in this song alone had me hooked, but when the angsty riff of strings came through I was shook.

“Breaking The Waves” sounds angsty and I love it. It’s almost like a soft punky sound that is reminiscent of the alt-rock movement of the 2000s. It’s a dope little sound that has been floating around and only now have I heard it again in its pure sound — like a little time capsule. The song is a reminder of the angst we all feel in our strange youthful lives (specifically high school.)

“Breaking The Waves” is all about the slow build of angst, that walk we all do down the neighborhood street, contemplating the people we miss, the frustrations we feel, and everything in between.
