Julianna Barwick – Same

A terribly powerful piece from popular ambient artist Julianna Barwick, has me swimming. At first listen, the track follows a gradual train not unlike other ambient numbers from contemporaries, but after more listens you start to hear something. The elongated tones and voices of the track give the feeling like a few emotional minutes, during the bout between lovers, is being stretched out into a few days and analyzed for what’s behind the pain. The wanting of reciprocation, the need to express, and the desire simply to be heard, loved, and respected.
