The Light Would Work For You – nimino

nimino has made some of my favorite chill music. It always sounds fresh and unhindered by genre convention. This latest track is one such track. It makes use of a crooning vocal distorted by taking the style of Kanye in “808s and Heartbreaks” to a level where the vocals express emotion without any intelligible words. This song pours out emotion. Opening with simple piano, the stage is set starkly, simply sad, while the vocals add a tender reverberating┬ásense of loss. After nearly two minutes, nimino adds a drum section, a gentle rhythm that buoys the melody without overwhelming it. It’s practically a Drum & Bass rhythm, but more relaxed. Then a hint of tropical flavor is added with a gentle marimba line. It’s a gorgeous, emotional track that invites listeners rather than demands. I hope it starts your week off with a sense of calm.
