After charming us all with the collaborative track ‘Her Love’ alongside iris, narou opens up to us in his most raw and intimate state with the release of ‘Deep End’ – the first glimpse into his upcoming debut EP ‘Good Company’ that delves into the anguish caused through conflict in relationships.
Utilising a dark and striking colour palate to emphasise the passion fuelled in the lyrics, it doesn’t take long for the raw emotion to encompass the mix and lure you in. Narou manipulates the thickness of the synths to be the catalysts of change in the required moments, where the swooping effect rises like a dark cloud and matches the intensity held in the powerful chorus.
“I wrote this song about my somewhat impulsive behaviour after fights in a loving relationship. I challenged myself to start with the hook in order to hit the listener with that dramatic message and feeling right away. Saying that I don’t ever wanna hear back from that person is a feeling that doesn’t reflect my actual needs when the storm has cleared, but more so a display of pure anger I felt in that very moment.” – narou
