Axel Thesleff recently put out an uplifting melodic bass infused single and music video for a track called “2 Down” and it’s a feel good track that is much needed with everything going on in the world right now. The single represents letting go of the cycle of negativity to welcome one’s inner light and forgiveness. Ethereal vocals and synths in flux pair with a mother’s journey through meadows and streams of Lapland as she overcomes the worst of sufferings and finds a gratitude towards life. Check out a quote from Axel on the release and the visual below, under that watch the video for “2 Down “. Enjoy!
“The 2 Down music video depicts a journey of a lonely backpacker in a vast, dreamlike landscape of a never-ending mountain range. The traveler seems to be completely lost in thought. Painful memories start to arise from the past and she is forced to dive into them. She must fight the demons of guilt, blame, and sorrow within in order to break free from this mental dissonance and find forgiveness, acceptance, and gratitude to replace them. The story is about overcoming the worst of sufferings and clearing one’s mind from agony. It’s about facing one’s deepest fears and painful emotions head-on and growing from them as a person. No one is perfect and sometimes one needs acceptance in order to move forward in life and strive to do one’s best. Life is short, and we should be spending it loving each other instead of fighting. Ultimately, 2 Down is about gratitude towards life”. -Axel
