Earlier this year, Active Child
, aka Pat Grossi, released the song "Cruel World," which seems to be extra fitting this week after the events in Las Vegas and Tom Petty passing
. So why not take a moment to embrace it and listen to something somber? Grossi's smooth vocals laid over a bed of gorgeous string arrangements and minimalistic beats makes for a spine-tingling listening experience. When the song came out, Grossi shared in a statement on Facebook, "I wrote this with the pain of the current state of affairs on my mind but with sincere hope in my heart. Let's all create more / perform more / love equally / worry less. And always, keep our heads up."
Active Child released the song via his own label, Sun Rooms Recordings.
