Kleerup – Until We Bleed

16 07 2013

Love at its most fragile and somber. This song seems to leave a real emptiness in the air. A tragic melancholy is created, as we listen to the vaporous voice of Lykke Li, hypnotising us into submission, placing us into a straightjacket, a hostage to the music, held in suspension. You feel a pain and anguish, yet it is this anguish that makes this track so captivating. The song’s meaning seems to be centered on addiction whether that is individual addiction or dealing with the strains of addiction within a relationship. There is a beautiful subtlety as Kleerup mixes vocal, with electronic and instrumental, you feel simultaneously unnerved and yet calmed, empty but whole, an unsatisfied satisfaction.
