Florián Rose is back painting gloomy arcade soundscapes with the incredible new single "8bit Dreams". Released today on all streaming platforms and of course, added to The Art of Being Queer Playlist!
Self-made lo-fi indie artist Florián Rose releases second single built around escapism and retro video games nostalgia.
Once again, written, composed and produced by Florián alone, the song is a mix between intimate shoegaze instrumentation like that of Cigarettes After Sex, and uncommon 8-bit sounds that feel fresh out of an Atari console.
Lyrically the song is about the singer’s strong yearning for a different world and the desire to find a helping hand to ease the burden of mundane struggles. On this aspect he says: “even though you’ll always be the main character in your story, sometimes it feels like you want someone else to be the Player One, to help you fight your fights while you take on a supporting role. This human experience of wanting relief is the song’s core.”
8bit Dreams available worldwide on Spotify, Apple Music and other streaming platforms!
