Dealing with earth shattering heartbreak is a soul crushing hit to the stomach that can take days, weeks, months and possibly years to fully rejuvenate from, if at all.
London’s BR3NZ depicts this vivid picture of pain to such a high level here that we all need to a get a stepladder to have a proper look. ”Other Side” is 2020’s ultimate breakup song.
With a flickering start, the smooth buildup takes us to the lyrical beginnings where the story unfolds. BR3NZ sings in a such a cool and mellow manner, each sentence is carefully crafted to have maximum impact. Dealing with memories of an ex-lover that you remember so vividly, with such love and affection can take you back to some great times. However, then you remember that they broke down your body armor and joined you inside. Then, just like that, it’s all gone and now they walk past you like a stranger.
A descriptive storyteller who laces summer beats on a sad song is a sight to behold. BR3NZ gets everything right with his new single ”Other Side” as this bouncy house beat with lo-fi appeal, blends nicely into a edm/ r&b banger that is perfectly made to hold your lover close, this is a warning that constant communication is needed to avoid that spark flaming out suddenly.
Get this single in your ears via his Spotify channel.
