If you are anything like me and you get the majority of your sanctity in aural form, the dreamy guitar-laden electronica single, Meditate, from the producer, Middle Child and guitarist, YHWHHH, will make for the perfect cosy and compassionate home.
With the vocals dripping with the Elliott Smith effect, the accordance of the choral reverb-swathed guitars, which will make any Slowdive fans’ hearts skip a beat, and the soft electronic layers, Meditate moves past catharsis instrumentally.
Lyrically, the single unfolds as a semi-lucid love song, full of proclamations of tenderly sincere affection which rival the sweet nothings that slip into lovers’ ears between consciousness and sleep. With millions of streams between them, something tells me that Middle Child & YHWHHH will be unstoppable from here on out.
Meditate is now available to stream on Spotify.
