You can tell how interesting this track is even only from its title.
The alternative r&b singer RAHM (actually written RⱯHM ⚉) delivers the melancholically sexy “that kinda dead feeling on the inside (yeah yeah yeah yeah)” which sounds like James Blake & JVLY merged – with heavy synths and heartfelt vocals. He elaborates:
I think a lot of the time I’m like a knight in armor trying to enjoy a day at the beach. Like I’m there, but I’m not exactly soaking up the gentle ocean spray through the helm. I can’t say I know exactly what the armor is made of, but that’s what I was thinking about. Something about an exoskeleton of self, the difference between what you think and what’s said, between what’s in front of you and what you can see.
With this single, he also announced his upcoming album So Close But So Far (stylized SO CLOSE BUt s o º o ˚ ˚ ˚ ˚ f ƒ ª a r ® ˚), which will take listeners to uncomfortable space. “I hope people can confront something in themselves,” says RⱯHM ⚉. “Perhaps go on a little mining excavation and feel like they have the space to do that.”
