As WYNNE continues to build his music career, he is also gearing up to release his debut EP, Both Sides. A few weeks ago, he released his first two singles. “Midnight” was inspired by the pandemic and is a profoundly striking memoir of introspection. WYNNE confides,
It’s about coming to terms with a sense of loneliness and isolation at a time when we all desperately crave connection.
The lush soundscape features gently flowing guitar plucks beneath mesmerizingly moody vocals. The introspective musings are delivered through a beautifully striking tone and capture the oh-so-relatable feelings of loneliness and heaviness that many of us have felt over the past year. Cinematic sounds swell behind a complementary rise in the lyrics as acceptance of those feelings is reached. Peaceful instrumentals boost the feelings of acceptance, creating an ascent into a tranquil closing.
You can listen to “Midnight” as well as the first track of the EP, “Open Doors,” today!
