Then his breakdown includes an impactful piano part along with some soft but impactful sounds. After, he just hits us with the second half that will leave the listener speechless. His interpretation of the future bass genre will keep it stronger than ever. The chords are fresh along with the arrangement they’re in.
Finally, he leads us out with a vocal performance that’s soothing and calm to the ear. He sings about a once memorable friend and lover. It tugs at the heartstrings and leaves you thinking.
