I not too long ago wrote concerning the shifting and empowering Billy Cullum observe “Gold.” Whereas noting that it was the opening music of his sophomore album period. Nevertheless, I didn’t have any additional details about the album launch. I’m blissful to report that Billy’s album has a title, “No matter Occurred Subsequent,” together with a thirtieth June launch date, and it’s now accessible for pre-order (HERE). Moreover, Billy has simply launched the follow-up single to “Gold,” titled “Twisted.” Although the 2 songs are musically various, they do a stellar job showcasing one other aspect of Billy Cullum’s artistry.
The 2 tracks have considerably totally different vibes. Whereas “Gold” was a very uplifting and optimistic music, “Twisted” is shades totally different. It has a a lot darker tone and is stuffed with angst at occasions. Notably, it is because the observe displays on a previous relationship and the combined feelings that include enthusiastic about somebody you broke up with.
“Footage and recollections depart stunning photographs in our minds however can even depart stains of ache. I believe the thought of hating loving somebody is so painful but the considered loving hating somebody is so darkish and harmful”. Billy explains.
The brand new music by Billy is sort of a departure from his standard sweet-natured model. Evidently, he’s been holding onto some intense feelings for fairly a while. He’s by no means been extra open in his lyrics than on “Twisted,” which is a searingly sincere account of his tipping level. The slicing lyrics make for a milestone observe that wholly captures the emotional depth of the second. The music video can also be fairly highly effective, with its aware use of black and white to convey the toxicity and drama of the scenario.
Loss is an unavoidable a part of private progress, as Billy discovers in “Twisted.” Subsequently, I imagine that in his forthcoming album “No matter Occurred Subsequent“, we are going to encounter extra poignant life moments woven into his searingly sincere songwriting.
It’s price discovering Billy Cullum now in case you’re like me and like sonically dreamy pop.
