Jikuroux shows us her breathtaking production in new track ‘Themed Break’
Complex yet simplistic, layered but with a breathtaking clarity, JIKUROUX has curated a sound for your every day dreamer. Her latest track, ‘Themed Break,’ is a forward thinking song that displays a level of restraint and maturity way beyond its years.
The Sydney based artist is quickly building a reputation around skill, and skill alone. Her music is something that is compiled with beauty in mind; the chosen samples and manipulation of sounds will have images of forests, mountains and tropical beaches dancing their way around your mind.
Jikuroux leaves you with a sense of serenity by encompassing deeper emotions in a way that’s easy to understand. She commented on the tracks foundation and how in order to move forward you may need to take a step back, saying, “Anxiety is so pervasive, both individually and collectively, yet reveals itself in so many complex ways. This EP is about taking a moment, creating a calm during the storm that doesn’t compromise the erratic nature of being, addressing and nurturing anxieties in a positive and healing way. ‘Themed Break’ is a love letter to functional club music — balancing soothing and serene melodic and vocal elements with hard kicks and drums.”
The track enriches your self-understanding and development through a wild ride of sonic embellishments. It is a track with a level of substance that is almost difficult to comprehend. Like receiving advice from a stranger, its something you didn’t know you needed but so grateful you now have. The track has been released ahead of her upcoming EP Cradle Bay so there are stacks more soothing synthy sounds coming our way. Have a listen to ‘Themed Break’ now and enjoy the moment.
