Today’s Track Of The Day is an emotional ride from Ruben Hultman‘s Portraits EP.
“Pictures” is an emotional track, expressing a combination of passionately wanting things and also never seeing them come to life.
Ruben heartfully expresses all facets of this experience vocally, with heavy drum beats and guitars also sighing along in grief and frustration.
“Colour, lines, proportion of some sort
Construct me an illusion worth dying for”
The dreaminess never truly dies though, sparking a glimmer of hope despite seeing nothing that makes that a rational thing. Even when it seems so painfully soul sapping to try so hard to bring an illusion to life.
Ruben makes beautiful and real music, and his songs are undeniably something special. Check out “Pictures” as well as stream the entire Portraits EP below.
