CloudKid Presents Francis Novotny – Someone I Wanted To Be
Francis Novotny’s latest single ‘Someone I Wanted To Be’ marks a highly commendable start to year in music for the young Swedish songwriter. Known for his beat-driven grooves and glitch-pop production style, ‘Someone I Wanted To Be’ strips it all back on this occasion. Delicately composed by an emotional piano progression, Novotny’s vocals take-center stage, inevitably gripping you for the next blissful 3 minutes of your life; combined with a build-up of harmonies and atmospheric synths, the track leads to nothing short of an ethereal experience.
“This song has been with me for some time and I’ve been waiting for the right moment to share it out. The meaning is pretty strong and direct: it’s about love and regret; but also about how as you grow older and get more ballsy, you can get a different perspective on things you did in the past”
