Casey Dubie

Hard and soft, up and down, hot and coldโ€”you can't have one without the other, but you can't experience them both at the same time. Somehow, you have to reconcile the opposites into a single concept. Casey Dubie touches on that in "Blue and Golden", the latest single from her upcoming 7-track EP.

Duality exists everywhere, including ourselves. It's coexisting with those parts that lead to who we are, often in a way we can't see ourselves. "If only you could see what I see," the quiet yet powerful voice starts. "That you're so easy, breezy boy," she concludes.

Even the song itself is a mixture of disparate parts merged into harmony. Starting minimalistic, it takes until 0:35 to hear a full chord ring out. Drums don't introduce the full sound until 0:48. Each layer is pulled apart for us to analyze, revealing what "Blue and Golden" is at the structural level.

Every turn Casey Dubie built into this song ladders back to our own dualities. And like any person, it takes a while to get a complete picture. So listen on repeat; it's worth it.
