Stockholm-based artist flyckt raps into our fear towards change and overcoming it in his debut single “Spotlight.” Drenched with shimmering synths and dark moodiness, “Spotlight” opens up about a toxic relationship that is hard to let go. There is a dance-inducing intensity followed by a heavy-heartedness that captures the bittersweet nature of it all. Enjoy:
On his new single, flyckt commented:
“‘Spotlight’ was one of the first songs I wrote after I got out of a toxic relationship with my then-girlfriend. I remember thinking to myself why I let this go so far. Everyone is in the Spotlight in their lives, and maybe that can be counterproductive in some sense. Like, it’s harder to take action cause you’re afraid that everyone is gonna judge you. I believe this song was a message to myself saying that it’s gonna be fine. If you want change, you have to take action.”
Rasmus Flyckt is the maestro behind flyckt, who is also a former member of Urban Cone. “Spotlight” is from his upcoming debut EP Instant Gratification pt.1, which will be out on August 28th via Humming Records.
