There is a spoiler for this single ‘The Line’. And when the chorus hits, a woven contentment wafts in to existence as Chris’ lovely vocals – both emotive and affectionate – gather its energies for truth and light, into that space of recognition in your listening soul.
The Latvia based singer/songwriter delivers a beautiful and subtly unadulterated lyrical exercise in ‘The Line’, as it follows his single ‘Fall Through’.
“The song is kind of about the process of moving on from someone,” said the indie-pop artist, “but finding yourself at the lowest point again, kind of still keeping the illusion of working it out alive at some moments, even though you are aware of the fact that it will never happen. Trying to move on, and trying to be completely honest to yourself. In the song, I tried to show, that the scenery, the environment around changes (verses), along me and the other person, but still, I am able to get myself back to the mental state where I’m really sad about the fact that its done.”
In the mists of melancholy of the song, Chris does a fabulous caress into the unfair and unassuming facts of feelings that we all often go through. An amalgam of excitement, seduced by lust, tempered then by practicality; all are soon or later consumed by the world it sits and purveys. A rather gray and perplexing adjustment for one soul to absorb – ingest – analyze – conclude.
Along the way, a phase of solitary sadness settles down to keep you focused at the task at hand.
Odd reality and world of contradiction, in which we live in, eh?
We think ‘The Line’ is Chris’ best yet. And we’d think you should look for more from the artist.
