Lose Yourself With cln and His Very Chill New Single, ‘REVELRY’

Brisbane chill-wave artist, cln has recently returned with yet another stunning new single, REVELRY. We’re told it’s the first of a collection of releases due over the coming months from cln and we’re very excited to hear more.

REVELRY is quite the dream of a tune. Perfectly fitted for those down times when needing to escape into another world. It’s an ideal study partner or perfect accompaniment for reading time. Smooth vocals over some very stripped back beats and subtle sampling make this track what it is. As cln explains, this one sat in the hard drive for some time.

“REVELRY’started with just the piano and the vocal, which is very unusual for me. It then sat like that on my hard drive for quite a while. I almost always make songs the other way round. I create an instrumental that I am happy with and then add the vocals on afterwards. I think because I’m a producer first and foremost, that is what’s most comfortable for me. I recently watched a video of Daman Albarn making Gorillaz demos in 1999. At the end of the video,he says something along the lines of “a song should be strong enough to survive whatever you do to it.” That really stuck with me, andit made me realise that I should spend more time focusing on the ‘bones’ of the song. As a producer, I love to obsess over tiny details for ages, and spend most of my time on the really intricate parts of the production. I think though, if I want to improve as an artist, it’s important to mix up the process and try to focus on the actual song first and foremost. For REVELRY I tried to build the song first, and then let the rest come naturally.” –cln

Cln has proven to us again, that he is a leader in his style of laid back and chilled vibes. REVELRY is available now, everywhere.
