The term ‘nothing’ is commonly seen as something negative. Usually equated to being empty or emptiness itself, it’s a term a lot of us scoff at. In fact a lot of us would feel hurt when we hear the phrase “You are nothing!”. But much like a double edged sword, nothingness or having nothing to a certain degree can be a good thing too. It’s the less popular route taken, but it exists and is readily available to people who look at life differently than others.
A road less traveled, we see this path taken by Australian act BaoBao with the song ‘Far Niente’. Released last August 11th in all major streaming platforms world wide. BaoBao’s ‘Far Niente’ is a soulful jazz-hop track that sweetly dances together to the passage of time. Aptly described by BaoBao as “the sweetness of doin’ nothing”. It serves as a gentle caress for those scared of being unproductive or simply staying still in one place.
True to form, it’s absence of words makes BaoBao’s ‘Far Niente’ speak louder than most tunes nowadays. Providing this gorgeous ambience laced with such rich intricate instrumentals that allow us to seek refuge and be alone with our thoughts. Literally a chill pill in music form, ‘Far Niente’ takes us far beyond this plane of reality and into a world of peaceful existence. Free to do what we love the most without being pestered, BaoBao makes sure we have a moments of silence to ourselves even for at least 2:08 minutes.
So if you’re on the lookout for a slice of silence in your everyday routine, then BaoBao’s ‘Far Niente’ is the right one for you. Perfect for every playlist, it’s a warm embrace to hush our calm nerves and restless bodies.
Happy Teusday folks!
