Love is infectious, but that’s sometimes an illness. The overly tethered lose themselves to emotional codependence. Adi Sun’s latest single, “Twin Flame”, explores that spiritual duality of self and surrender.
The destruction and purity swirl in the opening instrumental ambiance. It sparkles and warbles with ear candy in every bar. Just like a deceptive love, it invites you deeper and deeper. Adi Sun’s first spoken word slaps out of the void, awakening your ears to the melody.
“Girl, I need you by my side,” she pleads. “I can’t live without you,” she follows up later. These growlingly desperate lines echo throughout the evolving harmony. Switching from sparse drums to reverberating cymbals, the tonality never fully settles. Even the guitars shift from chunking chord after chord to gentle rolling lines.
Both sides of love appear in “Twin Flame”, a nuanced approach to authenticity. The realness likely stems from Adi Sun herself. “I create as a way to reflect and heal from painful experiences,” she says. Her truth pours from every note.
