Over captivating, blazing guitar riffs and lush yet sharp drum kicks, Bliss Williams strikes our nostalgia strings with his latest single “Thought I Was Young.” Williams’ voice swells and smooths as the intense sense of yearning blooms over the thrush of percussions and atmospheric clouds. While the nostalgic context is up to the listener, the craving to go back to a certain state in the past is one that we all share in common:
In his own words, “‘Thought I Was Young’ was produced at my flat in London and I’m not sure what it’s about. It was a Saturday afternoon spent strumming a couple of chords on my old Spanish guitar, and the words presented themselves after mouthing a loose melody for a few minutes. The song was born in the time it took to move my pen to the bottom of the page. I’m a bit of a miserable so-and-so, and there’s definitely a sense of yearning in the song. Maybe for a simpler time, if one ever existed. I am young, but not as young as I used to be. Funny one that.”
The track is the first release in a series of works that Williams will be sharing over the next few months, so make sure to keep him under your radar.
