Capturing an essence of early 2000s emo-rock, WALWIN’s new single ‘Halo’ is a nostalgic, yearning offering ear-worm melodies and an explosive guitar led backdrop. We’re very excited to be running the video premiere.
Wasting no time introducing the infectious chorus, ‘Halo’ as boxy, low pass filtered vocals and guitar set the scene. As the track enters the verse, a picky guitar takes hold under the high-low octave vocals, before bursting into full life with the soaring vocal harmonies of the chorus as the guitars burst to life with heavy distortion and the drums pick up energy.
In the latter stages, the track strips right back before bursting into a climactic final chorus, highlighting the artists ability to craft soundscapes with great contrast.
Accompanied by a simplistic, yet hugely effective and captivating black and white video of WALWIN’s enigmatic vocal performance, the track is given a visual aid to reflect the mood of the track.
Speaking about the track WALWIN explains:“I view Halo as the younger brother of my song Thorns. There’s a lot of similarities down to the timing and feel of it. Lyrically it talks about seeing through someone’s façade and exposing them for what they are.”
