American artist psalm unveils his latest single “Pathos”, an experimental and delicate slice of avant-pop.
Transcending genre boundaries and infusing influences from R&B and Electronica, psalm brings his latest musical vision to life through the atmospheric soundscape of “Pathos”. Lacing lines of contemplative lyrical imagery through a vast plain of ambient percussion, the track instills a flowing energy that is equal parts calming and deeply emotive.
“The piece reflects sentiments of post-amorous dread after an extensive and virulently forming relationship – you start questioning its significance and purpose, and you might
encounter some struggles with newfound promiscuitycatalyzed by said relationship,” psalm explains.
The record is released alongside a dynamic and nostalgic visualizer, where psalm gradually dies as he laments over a lost love in augmented reality, and is killed in Metal Gear Solid fashion upon the appearance of his newest self to allude the deliverance of his artistic reanimation.“Pathos” displays psalm defining his position not only as a music artist, but as a creative entity to be watched.
Shrouded in allure and defined by his peculiarity, psalm is an artist who projects his heart and soul into his compositions. With stubborn refusal of susceptibility to the heavy saturation of contemporary R&B tropes and elements within the past few years, “Pathos” exhibits the beginning of his pursuit to uproot pop music and help redefine the state of the culture.
“Pathos” presents psalm conquering bold unchartered territory, taking his musical trek down an unpredictable and exciting route.
