Australian artist Callan Alexander (aka cln) is back with new music! “Sunbeams” is the perfect tune for a lazy weekend afternoon due to it’s mellow atmosphere and warm/comforting sounds throughout. The single starts out with a gentle sprinkle of beats which are soon met with by cln’s soothing vocal timbre before bursting to life with a climatic drop, and from there it’s just a blissful journey of sound. Read a quote from cln on the new song below and stream “Sunbeams” under that! Enjoy.
“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. I really enjoyed making this song from a production perspective. There are three sections that sonically are super different, but still with recurring sounds and themes that go on throughout the piece. The start is calm and contemplative, then there is the hectic drop section in the middle and then a full beat switch at the end. It’s fun to make songs that evolve.” – cln
