London-based artist Shadient takes us on a futuristic journey titled ‘Dancing Alone Again’, the latest offering from his forthcoming debut album on NGHTMRE and SLANDER’s Gud Vibrations imprint which features the angelic vocals of fkynsyd for what is a tantalising adventure filled with striking electronic instrumentation.
Shadient immediately takes flight in this astronomical release with a focus on gripping synths coupling nicely with the commanding drums to cement the core elements in tact for the duration of the piece, all while allowing fkynsyd the perfect podium to launch her hazy melodies off from. With these gentle vocals soaring across the mix, ‘Dancing Alone Again’ creates a welcomed contrast between the enforcing instrumentation and allows a momentary reprieve once we’ve arrived in the futuristic galaxy.
“This song is possibly my favourite song I have ever made…I originally thought it was a silly little idea I had laying around but a few of my close friends told me I had something really special, which always helps me see something in a new light. I don’t want to speak too much on fknsyd’s behalf because she wrote the lyrics but this song was written to embrace isolation and loneliness—something I think everyone can agree they’ve felt a lot the last year or so. fknsyd really elevated the song with her voice and lyrics to really hammer that message home.” – Shadient
