Highlnd is diving into another collaboration alongside singer-songwriter Drowsy, arriving in the shape of “Save Me.” The new track finds both artists perfectly playing to their strengths, with Drowsy’s melancholic temperament complimenting Highlnd’s captivating productions. Listen to the song now below.
“Save Me” is a song that traps itself inside the intrusive thoughts of someone tortured by their own shortcomings. Drowsy dwells in a place outside of salvation, accepting a doomed fate without a shred of remorse. Highlnd highlights her pain marvelously, circling around her glowering critiques with mournful keys, sharp 808s, crackling textures, and brooding guitar riffs. During the moment when anxiety becomes too much to bear, the main vocal refrain is belted out in anguish while a flood of impassioned synths and electrifying glitches sweep in to drown out the desperation.
“‘Save Me’ is such a meaningful and genuine song that highlights the highs and lows of being self-made and the struggles surrounding it,” says Highlnd. “I put extra care into the production in order to do justice to Drowsy‘s incredible vocals. I’m happy to release this song on such a supportive and fitting label.”
