When you’re struggling, the right song can feel like a life raft to help keep you safe from the roaring waves and tides trying to take you down. It’s such a special feeling that we get every time we listen to Vaarin, so naturally, we’re here to gush about her latest single! ‘Dark Matter’ is a haunting exploration of how we all carry around the heavier parts of our past whether we realize it or not, combining a gentle, pensive guitar riff with eerie atmospheric sounds that almost sound like you’re running away from the deepest fears hidden in your mind.
A dark material inside of me keeps on pushing up front…someday I’ll get covered by it and the feeling of it staying alive forever, is quite scary. Our bodies seem to never forget trauma. This is a conversation with the black soil streaming through inside of me. And my frustration and journey along the way, wanting and trying to get rid of it. What are your darkest matters and how do you deal with yours?
We love that Vaarin is never afraid to tackle hard topics in her music, and ‘Dark Matter’ is the perfect example of how she can twist something terrible into a moving piece of art that can help someone else who’s facing a similar feeling. The lyrics and production blend together in such a beautiful way, and it’s giving us some pretty high hopes for her upcoming sophomore album, which is due this May! The project will take listeners through various dark matters and show us how Vaarin has found the light through them, which is guaranteed to give a little boost and an empathetic hug to anyone who needs it.
I believe we all have moments in our lives where we lose track, hope, and grip of happiness and reality. I dug deep for a long time and there it was – right behind my back.
And if you need it during a rut, Vaarin’s music is always right behind your back! She recently dropped a live video performing the masterpiece that is ‘Auteur’ in her apartment, and every lyric of that song peers right into our souls. It’s all about wondering how much influence you really have on your life and how others remember you, with Vaarin’s stunning vocals packing such an emotional punch.
On a scale from one to turning off every light in your house to get the vibe right, how much are you loving ‘Dark Matter?’ Are you excited to hear Vaarin’s new album this spring?
