OTNES – Blu3
You have to hear it to believe it: in less than two and a half minutes, “Blu3” morphs from a glitchy, experimental synth-pop track into a rock anthem. The build happens so fast that you want to rewind and observe how the Nashville singer/songwriter OTNES actually did it.
OTNES gives us some background:
“With’ BLU3,’ I wanted to combine the otherworldly nature of electropop textures with the grit of a live band. In my past project Emily Blue I was a big proponent of glitch sound design, and with this song being an homage and official goodbye to that project, I wanted to incorporate what sounds like a digital world breaking down and rebuilding itself into something new. This song is about committing to my inner journey, sorting through my traumas, and finding myself in the music.”
