By spotlighting talented Asian artists, 88rising has built an impressive platform, with signed artists such as Joji, Rich Brian and NIKI enjoying massive mainstream success.
They recently brought out Taiwan-raised electronic music virtuoso Josh Pan to take the stage at their Head In The Clouds festival in LA, which was followed by “go with the fire”, his debut release on the imprint. That song came with a riveting music video that followed several heists performed by a man draped in angel wings and his fearless sidekick.
Now the second installment in pan’s two-part video series has arrived in the form of ‘Float’, rounding out the story and offering another standout single from the producer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. Interspersed with his articulate vocals, ‘float’ juxtaposes the indietronica sound design beautifully with hard hitting percussion.
“Although the lyrics have a clear meaning, with feelings of loss and despair, mourning the end of a relationship, ‘floating’ should be left to the interpretation of the listeners,” explains Pan. “The feelings and ideas conveyed by the lyrics can be applied to any situation and relationship, be it romantic, platonic, familial, or even a relationship with a substance or addictive behavior. Customize the lyrics and feelings of this song into the context of your own life and tell me what it means to you.”
