Swiss-based BLVMENKIND (Gabriel Brönnimann) released his new single, ‘On My Own’, featuring Tom Wavy on the 22nd of September through Paradise Lost. His sound is an eclectic blend of electronica, pop, classical music and experimental sound design. He released his first official single ‘Dream With You’ featuring Sam Darton back in 2017. An immediate success, the track gained over 10 million streams on Spotify, YouTube and Soundcloud. Since then, he has received support from numerous publications, radio stations and popular YouTube channels. He has also appeared at RADAR Festival and EXIL Club in Zurich, as well as supporting popular French DJ Fakear on his Talisman 2023 Tour.
‘On My Own’ is an impressive blend of Drum and Bass and Pop. Tom Wavy’s plaintive vocals, accompanied by delicate atmospheric chords and tastefully-chosen effects, set the emotional tone for the track. The song slowly builds in intensity, eventually erupting with an explosive DnB breakbeat accompanied by emotionally-charged harmonies, which contrasts beautifully with the gentle pop-esque vocals and melancholy but hopeful lyrical content. The song’s excellent production and composition allow it to tell its story of love, loss and hope with ease and style.
BLVMENKIND commented: ‘On My Own’ is a song that I created quite early in the album production cycle in 2018. Back then, it only was a rough demo of a piano melody and a drum and bass loop. It stuck with me because the melody is very melancholic and lonesome but still has an optimistic feeling to it, which very well presented the situation I was in at that point of life but still is relatable today”.
