Multi-instrumentalist Pascal Righini did a great job writing a classic bob that both pulls and pacifies senses through its verse and chorus. The drums sit subtle and sturdy in the back of the mix, creating the backbone of this sweet tune that bursts within the soundscape around 40 seconds in.
The song speaks honestly about the human experience, the undeniable truth of our mass, matter, and mortality. “We are flesh and bone”—speaks truth to that which one is… “We’re nothing more, so treat me like flesh and bone”—be real.
Through this almost utilitarian or existential image cast on the human existence the singer calls to a love. “Hold me in your loving arms/ So I’m braced for the winter/ Teach me what I need to know/ So I can spot the summer on the horizon,” Righini sings softly atop the dreamy sonic space.
The two lines juxtapose the indifference of materiality, our “flesh and bone” and… love.

Anjali Rose Kumar is a musician, videographer, and creative freak based in Brooklyn, NYC. Anjali is learning to cope with a self-imposed quarantine in NYC’s second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic by spending her hours recording music in her bedroom, watching her unemployment leave her bank account, and embarking on a newly revived love of writing. In fact, when Anjali was 10 years old she was convinced she would live her life as a writer, however, she would often confuse her teachers by making up her own vocabulary and therefore buried the interest for 15 years. Cheers to the new years ahead of us. You can find out more about Anjali here.
