The latest installment in the series of live videos, from the Swiss Future R&B duo TRUE, is What I've Lost – a syrupy, anthemic radio ballad infused with a rich dose of bitter-sweet introspection. The song recounts real-life loss and the trying trials of the search for acceptance. It's a sugar coated, gut-wrenching confession.
The piece was born, almost fully formed, during a late night improv, following one of those heart-in-the-palm-of-your-hand, and flat out on the table type of conversations. The writing and the production has a mild post Dilla swagger to it – all analog synth lines and taut, snappy drum machine Bap! The vocals suffuse the formula with soothing, deep purple, narcotic sweet talk – with melodies which are disarmingly irresistible.
TRUE = Daniela Sarda / vocals and keys + Rico Baumann / keys, drums, drum machines and sound design.
