From Above

Grief. Regret. Dispair. Obsession. It’s safe to say that we’ve all experienced the wave of emotions that comes with a break-up. It’s one of the most powerful events we go through as human beings, bringing uncontrollable surges, followed up devastating lulls for weeks, months, and sometimes even years.

Humboldt, a Berlin-based songwriter, DJ, has certainly has tugged on our heartstrings today, showcasing a beautifully painful scene between two lovers. Interestingly enough, though, it’s gorgeously juxtaposed with his calming, rhythmic, and ethereal track “From Above.” The counter-balance between the powerful message, both through the visuals and lyrics, and his calculated arrangement of airy percussion, alluring piano melody, and engaging vocal hums create quite the experience, start-to-finish.

This up and coming artist gained a strong following through stellar remixes of both Alt-J and Still Parade, but now has his sites set on an original body of work, Mamihlapinatapai. Look for its release on Ove Records, Humboldt’s very own imprint, later this spring.
