Blue pill was always the answer

If you ever been caught in the Matrix paradox of red vs. blue pill, then JVLY’s “Blue Pill” ft. SARAI will remedy some of that unquenched curiosity. We all wondered what might’ve happened if Neo would’ve chosen the blue pill – he goes back to whatever imaginary world technology seems to fuel him. JVLY’s “Blue Pill” is sort of like that. The slow-burning buildup creates a dreamy and trippy space where SARAI’s crispy vocals add a touch of smokiness to it. The track has moody undertones to it, but JVLY keeps the listener buoyed in an ethereal space by adding aerated synths and swelling ambience. Stream below:

“‘Blue Pill’ came together really effortlessly, I spent a couple of days putting the instrumental together with help from the old dx7. When I write, a lot of the time it seems to turn out kind of sad, and I really didn’t want this song to be like that. I had an idea for a concept so I asked Sarai to be a part of it (she was a big part of my debut EP ‘Ache’). We always seem to have a synergy when it comes to collaborating, and it was the same with ‘Blue Pill’. She brought so much life to it.” said JVLY

“Blue Pill” is out now via the Australian label Mammal Sounds Records in all streaming platforms. JVLY is a Sydney producer who has already amassed 1.3 million streams and debuted his EP Ache in early 2018.
