The Pink Nostalgia has come in with a pretty little cloud of a song that squeezes out the youth in you in Space and Time. If Troye Sivan and Alessia Cara had a vocal baby it would be The Pink Nostalgia. All three of them have the ability to encapsulate feelings and periods of time perfectly within 3 minutes.
The song is driven by the instrumental that set the stage for a stellar performance by The Pink Nostalgia. It is perfectly complemented by a techno drum section that is reminiscent of the disco classics section. They take the listener on a journey through space and time. They seem to question their youth and how they sometimes think too much and sometimes not be able to keep up with their own body and life, in a world that often seeks to categorize and constrain. The chorus is particularly impactful, with “In my mind i didn’t realise, all i need is space and time.” Serving as a powerful reminder that growth and self- discovery are ongoing processes that require patience and self-compassion.
A series that perfectly encapsulates this feeling is The Politician. A song that came to me continuously that Ben Platt has sung in the series is “Vienna”. I think Space and Time would be a perfect addition to The Politician’s soundtrack. “Space and Time” is a beautifully crafted piece of music that speaks to the human experience in a way that is both universal and deeply personal.
