We’re always happy to hear something new from the Australian electronic music scene here at Purple Melon. That something new comes from Callan Alexander – aka cln – who has been busy sharing his digital creations over the past few months, the recent of which is ‘Sunbeams’.
As you’ll learn in the quote from cln below, the songwriter-producer set out to capture that bittersweet feeling that you get when you reflect on the past. The chilled and warm atmosphere frame this endeavor in rose-tinted glasses, warping our view of the past in the same way that memories change over time.
“When I was writing it, I was going through a bit of writers-block, so I tried to change things up a bit and write a story–not necessarily based on my own experiences but I still wanted to capture a certain emotion. I tried to paint a picture of a memory, and I wanted to capture that bittersweet feeling that you get when you dwell on past experiences. This song is about nostalgia as it tells the story of a lost friendship and the experience of exploring both the good and bad memories associated with it.”
