After a few months of silence, electronic R&B artist cln is back! Having recently come off his debut album Dawn Chorus, we’re excited to have the pleasure of premiering the Australian phenom’s new single “Broken Glass“.
This latest from cln delves deep into the storytelling x musicality we’ve come to love. Leading off with a soft, warbling guitar and gentle soundscapes, cln’s passionate, auto-tuned vocals slip in under some skittering percussion, immediately giving the track a dark, melancholic vibe.
“Broken glass is a reference to something that is shattered and cannot be restored. This song was written in response to the current state of the climate, particularly the bush fires that we are currently experiencing in Australia. It’s saddening to see politicians tiptoe around climate change issues and focus on financial gain at the expense of everything else. As a result, our climate is suffering and has been damaged in irreparable ways. We need to make significant changes as soon as possible-once our fauna and flora are gone, we can’t get them back.” – cln
We’ve been loving everything the Brisbane-based artist has rolled out thus far and cant wait to hear what he has in store for the new decade. Stream “Broken Glass” below and enjoy!
