BLVCKBVRN - Sink Or Swim - Stereo Stickman



Dreamy guitars and humble production return to light up the evocative and warm sound of BLVCKBVRN. This time we delve into a contemplative realm of vulnerability, self-reflection, and realism, for the melodically infectious single Sink or Swim.

Ultimately an outright anthem for its simple melodic rise and fall and the relentless good vibes of the groove, Sink or Swim rightfully utilises contrast to showcase the weight of its subject matter.

Our protagonist sings with emotional strain about loneliness and the struggle to adapt to the fast-pace of life, but meanwhile this ethereal back and forth of the chords and these light drums, the reverb-kissed guitar pouring through like waves of optimism, creates an unassuming safe space – within which these thoughts can really connect.

BLVCKBVRN always sets the mood musically, and the voice in this case is sublime – gritty and genuine in its relaying of hardship and uncertainty. The combination of fluidity and simplicity musically, with the clear character and authenticity of the performance and lyrics, again helps create something distinct and rather iconic. The song feel timeless, is a pleasure to let fill the room, and brings a clear sense of something original and pure to the summer scene.
