There’s no preparing you for the resolving bliss found in Norwegian and Russian trailblazing Pop artist Sebastian Akselberg’s single “Wish You Were Lonely”.
As you listen to the all too relatable lyrics which poignantly capture the lacerating feeling of watching someone move on while you’re still caught up in them, the light an invitingly textured feat of Alt-Pop will draw you deeper into the track until you reach a stunning synth solo with cavernous spaces around Sebastian Akselberg’s porously evocative vocals. But the track doesn’t end there, before the seamless fade out, there’s a final kick of momentum which affirms the level of passion which the artist projected into this mix.
I have a feeling it will be quite a while before I get those spacey airy indulgent tones out of my head.
