Writing about music all day unlocks some pretty solid perks. Some days you meet extraordinary people.
Today, we get the chance to premiere a song of a very extraordinary musician.
His name is Ruben Hultman from Sweden.
Ruben is releasing his EP on June 1st.
Today, he is releasing the first single off of thay EP.
The EP 'Portraits' has 6 songs. The song we're premiering today is the sixth song 'Tied Hands'.
We asked Ruben what this song means and he replied with the following:
"Track No. 6 off the Portraits EP - 'Tied Hands' is written around an intern joke I have with my friend Zack, who is playing the drums on the EP. I tried to explain it several times to other friends, but nobody sees the humor in it the way we did. So I twisted it a bit and gave it some depth instead. The song turned out to be a good way to end the EP and it sheds some light on the darkness that is expressed throughout the other tracks. It's funny how it really was the missing piece to the concept and how it came to my mind in a moment of laughter instead of being a heavy hearted creation."
Inspiration sometimes strucks in odd moments!
