Mountain Bird has revealed the third instalment to his forthcoming EP DearBrainLetMeSleep, the restrained and beautiful Clean From You. With a sanguine approach to losing someone close, Clean From You is tinged with an aching melancholy that’s heartbreakingly palpable as you listen. With its beguiling synth textures and beautiful falsetto vocals, with interwoven vocoder sounds, it’s impossible not to be moved by this powerful track.
Mountain Bird says: “Clean From You is about being cheated on and finding out in a bad way. To be let down by someone you thought you were really close to, and to lose trust in all future relationships…It’s about trying to get that self-confidence back, but always being careful in new relationships, and wondering if it will ever go away. All relationships shape you in a good and bad way; we just think we can shape ourselves, but it’s mostly dependent on other people and their actions. It’s quite provocative if you think about it that way”
