44 Ardent Reveals Dreamy New Single, ‘bones (sinking like stones)’

Last week one of our favourite rising artists, 44 Ardent revealed a striking new single, bones (sinking like stones). It’s another delectable piece showcasing 44 Ardent’s signature sound that he truly owns as his.

Following on from his previous 2023 singles, far gone and hold the world in your hands, this new single carries all the elements we’ve come to expect from 44 Ardent’s unique production style. It’s dreamy, it’s lush and rather refreshing in this modern world of electronic delivery.

“This song was written in early 2022 when Meanjin (Brisbane) was flooding. Floods are heartbreaking times and can be life-changing experiences for those involved.

The flood was devastating, but it also highlighted the strength and resilience of our community. It’s quite easy to lose faith in humanity sometimes, but during the floods, everyone rallied together and there were countless people helping total strangers to clean up and move belongings. So, to me, I found that there was some beauty in amongst all the destruction – a silver lining, I suppose.

This song is a bit of a reflection on the emotions I was feeling at the time. It was initially a much slower, sadder song, but over time during the writing process, I ended up speeding it up a fair bit and changing the style. I suppose at its core, it’s a song about people coming together in difficult times. I like to think that most people are inherently good and trying their best, and times like these do help to reinforce that belief.“ ~ 44 Ardent. 

We’re told to expect a lot more from 44 Ardent this year as he’s just getting started on what is going to be a mammoth year of releases. This one is available now, everywhere via our pals at Mammal Sounds Records.
