Today we are premiering the new track, "Switch Gears," from Australian producer cln
, who has teamed up with longtime friend, vocalist/rapper pseudo. Of the song, cln says, "I started this instrumental about two years ago but I just had a chord progression and the piano bit. pseudo is a very talented writer and lyricist, so I sent him the rough instrumental and for about a year, we were sending stuff back and forth." He continued, "A lot of the writing and production for this song was done during really chaotic periods of my life. I'm in my fifth year of university, so the assignments and exams pile up very quickly. I used this project as a way to step back from the craziness and just sit and make something relatively relaxed."
pseudo added, "At the time when I wrote the lyrics, I felt like I'd been on autopilot for too long. Coming out of a yearlong relationship, the days felt stale and my nights were vividly unsatisfying. I guess it's about that struggle to break the loop and find something legitimately fulfilling."
"Switch Gears" is a smooth trap track with low laying bass, dirty vocals, and crisp beats. Just in time for the solar eclipse, sitting back, looking at the sky, and chilling out to this atmospheric song would be dreamy perfection.
