CloudKid Presents Silent Child – Empty Promises
Silent Child explores the concept of fallible romance with his latest unmissable single ‘Empty Promises’. Staying true to his unique sound, the track manifests its emotional undertone with an intriguing blend of both sadness and joy at the same time; or as Silent Child explains “a track that would make you cry out of understanding rather than unhappiness”. Led by punchy guitar riffs, a mirage of vocal tracks and an ecstatic drop, ‘Empty Promises’ does in fact continue to show promise for the young 19 year-old producer. He explains:
“This song is about the empty promises of saying “Forever”. You get into a nice relationship and everything is going good. You think that you’re going to last for a lifetime, but along the way you realize they just aren’t the one. All that talk about the future just means nothing now and it turns out that “Forever” was pretty short. At the same time, if you didn’t go through all of that, you wouldn’t be the same person that you are today. Nothing is for nothing”
»Nothing is for nothing«
After multiple stand-out singles and collaboration, Silent Child’s journey to get to ‘Empty Promises’ is an admirable one. Producing all his music with a semi-broken laptop and recording vocals on an iPhone, shows an artist with resilience and deep-rooted passion for his music. Ultimately transferred into the final product, ‘Empty Promises’ is another testimony to this.
