Top Tracks: HARMS – Aquarium

I do love a bit of rich imagery in a song, and Brooklyn based artist Jake Harms offers just that in his latest track ‘Aquarium’. Comparing life in New York to a life behind glass, the pressure weighing down on you as you stare out into another world so cut off from your own, ‘Aquarium’ offers a unique and interesting point of view. It’s such a great metaphor, not only for the city as a whole, but for all the people trapped in their own little bubble as they go about their daily life. Musically it blends the serene haze of dream pop with bouts of dark and gothic post punk. With an enveloping feel, like the underwater life it depicts, it’s perfectly suited for those days when you’re lost in a fog of thoughts, trying to make sense of it all.
