Showcasing atmospheric dream-pop that’s full of impact an depth and ingenuity, Norway’s Yndling has unleashed the intoxicating new single ‘Out Of My Way’. Despite being only her third single release, the track demonstrates such a complete and thoroughly well thought out sound that it’s hard to believe Yndling is not already a household name.
Opening with a reverb drenched guitar line and splashing of subtle atmospherics, ‘Out Of My Way’ soon bursts into life with a thick, warming layer of synth chords, bass and drums which swirl around Ynding’s stylistic, breathy vocals. Having created a wash of escapism, the track quick jumps into it’s fuzzy guitar riff led chorus opening into an astonishing, airy middle 8 that serves to enhance the tracks already breathtaking soundscape.
Speaking on the meaning behind new single, Yndling explained: “It’s about that stage in a relationship where you are half in, half out, and can’t really find a way to make things work or to let go properly. In a situation like that, it’s my experience that one part will get over things first, and kind of leave the other part behind. Meeting up again, and realising that the other person has a totally different view of the situation and is totally over it, is super hard. The title and hook of the song comes from that feeling – the feeling of having gone «out of your way» to please someone and make things work, thinking you did it together, and realising that they never put in the same effort and didn’t care as much as you did when it came down to it. That sort of thing is a real mindfuck to me, how two humans may perceive a situation so differently. It can make me feel so inferior and out of place.”
