Ceyeo has done it again with his new introspective pop ballad. The experience of feeling lost and alone is so uniquely universal and subjective at the same time. Ceyeo seems to have cracked that riddle in his new single- Lost.
The song perfectly encapsulates the mood with its psychedelic beat structure paired with the upbeat hip-hop delivery by Ceyeo. He soulfully delivers his lyrics with passion, making sure every word is registered by the listeners. It is interesting the way the track begins, it is almost as if either vocals or the beat itself is lagging. We then realise that it is intentional and adds a layer that we couldn’t have even imagined to have brought. “Taking me back there, making me angry and killing my will to care.” It’s lyrics like this that perfectly capture the multiple feelings that come with loneliness. It feels reassuring though that he has a partner that he can lean on.
More often than not, during times of loneliness, all we need is someone to listen to us, not solve our problems but just listen. A film that captures this frame of “need” for the lonely heart is Garden City. This track would fit like a pea in a pod situation as it captures the journey of loneliness experienced not just by one character but many who ultimately find each other.
Ceyeo has always had his own way of making music and only he can bring what he does to the table. We hear him showcase unique work that must receive the limelight that it deserves. Don’t forget to give this one a listen and follow him as he has a lot more to give as we eagerly wait for his future releases.
