One more atmospheric song by Belle Sonder
Artist about the track:
‘How Do You Get Out (Of Your Head)’ is a return to Belle Sonder’s signature, atmospheric sound, rooted in post-rock and soundscape influences. Built around a looping processed guitar motif, ‘How Do You Get Out…’ studies the cyclical internal thought that so many of us are experiencing whilst isolated from physical contact. A gradual build of dreamy guitars and reverberating drums provide the backdrop for the introspective yet determined vocals of lead vocalist Eirik Bøen Gravdal, as the song swells towards a crescendo of vast, distorted guitars and echoing, effected vocals, before breaking out in to a liberating and inquisitive central lyric, “How do you get out of your head?”. Just as resolution seems apparent, the song retreats to the original riff, closing out the four-minute track just as it began, alluding to an inability to get out of the recurrent patterns of thinking, whilst offering a sense of contentment that comes from externalising what’s on your mind. ‘How Do You Get Out (Of Your Head)’ is a song about feelings at a time when talking about them is more important than ever. “But actually, I’m kinda afraid” and that’s okay.
Your words have no meaning When they fall From the lines They're upon Couldn't make up the feeling But actually, I want to tell you more Imagining the walls Building them around your fragile mind Keeping it at bay But actually, I’m kindof afraid Afraid of who we are Afraid of who we’ve become Afraid to get out of this comfort We’re getting too used to Being afraid of what is coming Get out of your head Get out of my mind x2 With equal parts of loneliness Mixed into All parts of withdrawal In everything We posses Are we Ever Getting out of here? HOW DO YOU GET OUT OF YOUR HEAD
