After sharing his Nettwerk debut release last month, London based musician & producer Vraell is back today with another impressive single titled ‘Flicker‘. Featuring intricate nylon guitar, interspaced with electronic flourishes as his sincere, heartfelt vocals soars throughout the track, Vraell once again shows immense depth in his fledgling musical journey.
‘Flicker‘ is about not feeling good enough for someone you care about or love, maybe just not being good enough for yourself either. “I think it leans into the idea that sometimes the hatred we have for ourselves wraps us up to the point that it covers our ability to see any light that’s also there. I think we gravitate towards our darkness and what we hate about ourselves, thinking it always defines us,” Vraell says. “This song is essentially an ongoing rejection of that light, which leads us to feel inadequate. But we need to accept that the parts of us we think that are lesser are just as important as everything else. Once we accept this – then maybe we can be good enough for ourselves, and the surrounding people in our lives.”
