Castles

Home is not always a physical space, sometimes it can also be a person. ‘Castles’ is about finding comfort in the people around you and finding a way to overcome your personal struggles. Touching on a personal memory, shy-C shares “In 2018, I visited my partner while she was on exchange in Finland. The cold air was biting but the warmth of seeing her again made me forget about the weather. This very contrast of cold and internal warmth inspired the mood of the track. ‘Castles’ was written as a reminder that it is okay to rely and depend on our loved ones.” Breaking down ‘Castles’, it starts out reposed and melancholic, where subdued synths pair with glitchy piano chords. As the track progresses, more layers are introduced and the timbre warms up. Heavy guitars, as well as thick and lush synth pads bring the drop in, providing listeners with the feeling that like you are sitting close to the sun, but the heat is a warm and welcoming embrace.
