Over the last few months Australian artist/producer 44 Ardent has given us two exceptional new singles with ‘far gone’ & ‘hold the world in your hands’, and he says he has a whole lot more where they came from as well.
His next single is titled “bones (sinking like stones)” and it is another stunning display of his hypnotic indie-house sound and style that just works on so many levels, and as he reveals below it is a song about people coming together in difficult times.
“This song was written in early 2022 when Meanjin (Brisbane) was flooding. Floods are heartbreaking times and can be life-changing experiences for those involved.
The flood was devastating, but it also highlighted the strength and resilience of our community. It’s quite easy to lose faith in humanity sometimes, but during the floods, everyone rallied together and there were countless people helping total strangers to clean up and move belongings. So, to me, I found that there was some beauty in amongst all the destruction – a silver lining, I suppose. This song is a bit of a reflection on the emotions I was feeling at the time. It was initially a much slower, sadder song, but over time during the writing process, I ended up speeding it up a fair bit and changing the style. I suppose at its core, it’s a song about people coming together in difficult times. I like to think that most people are inherently good and trying their best, and times like these do help to reinforce that belief.“~ 44 Ardent
