Haunting piano music is set to make a massive comeback in 2018 and TAYM is at the forefront of the talented pool of pianists with his resonant composition If Only I Knew.
If Only I Knew is as far as you can get from a classical composition with a twinge of R&B & Soul, yet, it pertains the heart wrenching melodies of other classical contemporaries such as Nils Frahm & Sigur Ros. With a chilling, yet transient progression, the track unfolds as Taym uses his sonorous vocal ability to lull you into a state of melancholy. What hits you the hardest in Taym’s new release which was dropped on January 03, 2018 is the lyrics, normally it’s a tad cliché to say that the lyrics offer a window into the soul, yet, there’s simply no other way to explain the tearful narrative which the pensive artist has put out there. The track probably hit me harder than the iconic Titanic theme song by Celine Dion with it’s unique ability to just let you slip into the music.
So, grab some tissues and check out the poignant new track by Taym on SoundCloud by using the link below:
