BAELY – Stuck In These Walls, Love Blinds & Confines

“But your flood can be misunderstood
Wall telling me they full of pain, resentment […]
If these walls could talk
I can feel your reign when it cries gold lives inside of you
If these walls could talk
I love it when I’m in it, I love it when I’m in it”. – Kendrick Lamar

Rising talent BAELY has released his debut single ‘Talking To The Walls‘ this Friday April 26th, 2019.

Electro R&B type of vibe, vibrant vocal rendition, captured in an elegant visual… BAELY proudly presents his first piece of work.

The groove of the bass line slowly introduces the theme of track, followed by the smooth entrance of the keys that is echoeing the theme. The sound already suggests an odd feeling, and the guitar brings some kind of a melancholic mood. As the instrumentation gives an idea of the global emotional state, BAELY sings with passion about the pain to feel stuck in love. The video pictures the walls of an old house as the old the idea (misconception) of a person. BAELY develops then a storytelling around disillusion and being confined in an elusive and toxic relationship.

The tune, intense and complex, is produced by Marco Bernardis, with additional production and mix by Grammy award-winning Tyler ‘Lophiile’ Acord (H.E.R. – ‘Best R&B Album’) – both 2 thirds of the much-lauded Radiant Children. The song was engineered by Prash ‘Engine-Earz’ Mistry, who was also Grammy-nominated this year for his album Symbol and holds collaborations with Jorja Smith and The Prodigy, to name a few.

The stylish visuals – directed by Jordan Stephens – see BAELY located in a derelict building eagerly in search of an elusive female character played by dancer and model, Demi Rox.

 

BAELY was raised as part of a musical family with some of his biggest influences being legendary figures like Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, and Donny Hathaway, and more contemporary influence coming from the likes of D’Angelo, Miguel and The Internet. For the past couple of years, BAELY has honed his skills behind the scenes, writing and collaborating with an incredible roster of producers and artists alike. This, coupled with opportunities to work as a backing vocalist for Kwabs, Farr, Jordan Rakei and Will Heard has helped prepare him for his own solo career.
