Journey Back in Time with Solbore’s Latest Sonic Tale
Dive into the shimmering soundscape of nostalgia and lost youth as Solbore, the enigmatic maestro behind the decks, transports us on a time-travelling odyssey with “Back In Time.” This auditory gem, the second single from Solbore’s highly anticipated full-length album, “Never Alone, Often Lonely,” is out now courtesy of Rainbow Bridge Records.
As the opening notes gently wash over your senses, you’ll find yourself awash in the mesmerizing waves of swirling, processed synth organ and the hypnotic embrace of deep sub-bass drones. With patience as its guiding muse, a hauntingly beautiful melody unfurls, weaving a dreamscape that tugs at the heartstrings, and conjures vivid scenes of days gone by.
Solbore isn’t content with merely painting sonic pictures; they’re also the creative visionary behind the mesmerising music video that accompanies “Back In Time.” The whimsical tale unfolds against the backdrop of the majestic mountains north of Madrid, immersing viewers in a realm of youthful innocence and boundless wonder. It’s a fairytale world where time is no barrier, and dreams are reality.
The backdrop to this musical magic is a narrative that’s as intriguing as the sounds it generates. Amid the stillness imposed by the pandemic, Solbore found themselves bedridden, navigating the labyrinth of a tumultuous long-term relationship’s end, grappling with the void left by the loss of a loved one, and recovering from an injury that had confined them to immobility for three long months.
Solbore’s own words offer a glimpse into the depths of this creative journey: “I wrote this song and video idea while in lockdown, in the rustic embrace of the Madrid mountains. I was bedridden, yearning to roam the world beyond, so I scripted this petite adventure story. After three months, I finally regained the freedom to walk. I rounded up a local videographer and a group of spirited kids, even crafting a makeshift raft, and embarked on a shooting expedition.”
Beneath the surface of this musical narrative lies a profound transformation, as Solbore shares, “I believe, deep down, I yearned to seize the leading role in my own life. Having just weathered the tempestuous end of a relationship and the heart-wrenching loss of a dear one, this video became a vital component of my artistic and emotional evolution, an intricate tapestry interwoven with my musical and visual endeavors.”
“Back In Time” is more than just a song; it’s a portal to an alternate dimension of emotions, where past and present converge, crafted by a resilient artist seeking to redefine the course of life.
