REVIEW: SPLENDORE - 'OMG, am I really feeling these feelings I’m feeling right now?'
Italian DJ and producer SPLENDORE has dropped his highly-anticipated new EP ‘OMG, am I really feeling these feelings I’m feeling right now?’ after the successful reception to his previous single “Come Online”.
Released via Ivreatronic, ‘OMG, am I really feeling these feelings I’m feeling right now?’ is heavily inspired by extreme electronic pop music with SPLENDORE effortlessly flowing from Italian, English, and Spanish. Keeping you on your toes from track to track, SPLENDORE takes the listener on a journey through an entirely memorable soundscape of futuristic beats, and otherworldly vocals, all the while creating an entirely captivating and unforgettable EP.
Teaming up with the fresh and exciting queer digital artist Thanyy the EP comes with a series of weird and wonderful pieces of artwork focusing on a ‘super weird’ post-human character on his search for his own identity. This search for self discovery is then reflected within the music, a commonality being a quest for self-knowledge where anyone can be whatever and whoever they desire.
SPLENDORE on the meanings behind ‘OMG, am I really feeling these feelings I’m feeling right now?’:
“Life is a summer love. It doesn’t last forever but we act like we don’t care. The bittersweet memory and the harsh reality. This song, as this record, is about that adolescent idealization. Coping with depression, loss, anxiety. That’s the reason why this track has this peculiar sound narrative as we’re moving from the ideal past to the complexity of adulthood.”
Searching for inspiration in futuristic electronic Russian and Chinese music SPLENDORE has perfected his unique and mesmerising sound that is both reminiscent of major electro-pop ballads while staying entirely distinctive. Having amassed over 300k plays across his first releases back in 2019 SPLENDORE has continued to create a body of work that is in equal parts bewitching and beguiling.
