We’re back with another premiere, treating you to a song you’ll obsess over, wearing out the play button. You Were Right by Blvmenkind is the track we’re showcasing today; a Post Malone-esque piece of beauty that most musicians within that genre could only aspire to sound like. I will also mention that the three sacred words, You Were Right, often appear in my wildest fantasies, with my girlfriend being the one saying them after a tense argument. It never comes true though, and I’m stuck doing all the ironing with one hand and cooking a meal for us with the other. If I blink three times quickly, please call the police.
Blvmenkind bursts out of any kind of genre-defining bubble here with a memorable and addictively catchy tune in You Were Right. It really does feel like a track in its own space, sculpted by electronic elements, borrowing sounds that feel modern and cutting edge in some places, then transporting us back to the ’80s in others. I say that, but in truth, the song feels timeless. It’s a rare feat to have your track feel at home across numerous decades, but Blvmenkind has got it figured out.
If You Were Right was a colour, it would be one of those disco balls you buy from a gadget shop for your makeshift house parties, with tonnes of flashing lights painting their way across your walls. Bring out the mojitos, Glen! We need to get this party started. Hit play on You Were Right while you’re at it. It evokes feelings of wanting to get up and dance, closing your eyes, and taking in the moment in its purest form to a soundtrack that freezes a moment in your mind for eternity.
I suppose I need to wrap this premiere up, but my love for this track is already evident, and it feels unsatisfactory to attempt to conclude it in the form of a paragraph with big and seemingly intelligent words. So instead, I’ll keep it simple. Listen to You Were Right by Blvmenkind immediately. Cheers!
