For his latest single, the young songwriter and entrepreneur touches on an unbalanced side of love. The listener is immediately reminded of their own past, with the topic being one that will appeal to all.
“’Artistry’ could very well be the most tragic song I’ve ever released. From a tapestry woven by purity & love to a travesty knotted & barely recognisable, ‘Artistry’ conveys a twisting of love. It was written vaguely 8 months ago at my parent’s home on the Gold Coast. I was sat on a bar-stool near our old garage, messing around with the chord progression from ‘Oceans’. The majority of it was penned throughout that day, even though I had to study the terminology behind how tapestries were made… This piece is an ambiguous example of how fragile we feel in a position of selflessness, yet also how authoritative & powerful we feel when being selfish, even though, in reality, we eventually realise it is always the complete opposite.”
