I wanted to share my experiences and thoughts with others of the same age that were faced with the same circumstances. I felt I can’t be in this alone and I was sure other young people felt the same. I soon realized why don’t I try to tell my own story so they would know they’re not alone either. Follow me by clicking your favorite social media above and signing up for my newsletter.
Sydney Gordon releasing ethereal pop-trap single “Too Close”
On May 6th, 2022 Sydney Gordon’s third single will be released on her independent label, Static Impulse Records. The singer songwriter is poised to rapidly elevate her presence as a rising star in the music scene, building on the early momentum from her first two singles earlier this year. “Too Close” features an ethereal pop-trap style track with Sydney’s intimately sung vocals narrating a cat & mouse like dance-chase. Asked about what inspired the lyrics for “Too Close” Sydney explains;
“Too Close” is about almost falling for someone but not letting your guard down in order to protect yourself. I think that almost everyone has experienced this feeling- you want to give in and take the risk of trust, but you’re scared of getting hurt. For this record, I decided I would paint a picture for my listeners based on a previous experience of mine. In this track, I’m admitting to this boy that I want to get close to him, but I push him away in fear of being let down like I have in the past by others. It takes a lot for me to break down my walls and let someone get close to me. I think this record describes this part of me perfectly which is why I love it so much.”
Sydney co-wrote “Too Close” in collaboration with Ben Antelis and the track was produced by Mike Cortes. The track was mixed by Tony Maserati and mastered by Dave Kutch.
