‘Withered’ is the 3rd track from debut EP of Icelandic artist Daníel Hjálmtýsson.
“Open up your eyes…”
Something that is there in the distance, edged in foggy inclinations, make doubt of your senses and maybe alter your habits of living, step-by-step.
Brooding in a syrup-y vexation, the crawling adulations within the folds of the single, timidly but surely, closes in on your weaknesses – perceived, or otherwise.
A growl, just underneath the surface, a profundity of emulation, cleanses your pallet for the person you’d once been.
An injection of a very personal commentary; intimate and loving.
“Facing the torment of regret, not being able to accept what has passed; realizing the fact that things will never be the same and some things cannot be undone or unsaid, even if they are forgiven.”
A turn of the chapter is sometimes what’s needed. We hedge our bets too much sometimes, with one foot in the past and one foot searching through the yet revealed future’s darkness.
Let’s move on. Let’s open up our hearts.
