Sydney’s Mulholland Blond has made a habit of popping up on the pages of auspOp over the past couple of years. Looks like he’s here to stay.
‘Stay’, of course, is the title of the singer songwriter’s latest earworm which dropped yesterday.
And it comes at the end of what’s been an incredibly long, difficult year for most people across the country.
Mulholland Blonde penned the track after almost losing someone close to him.
“It was a tough time & writing about the experience proved cathartic,” he reveals. “Although the song has its own connotations in line with my experience, I wanted it to be universally relatable. By keeping it lyrically indirect, I hope the listener can find their own meaning & pair it with resonating themes within their life.”
It’s a lovely piece; the singer’s soft vocals simmering in a pan of polished electronica and retro flourishes.
