Single: Watercolor – Permanence

“The person you were before never really goes away, and the things you regret never disappear completely. The past only fades, and the present bleeds into the old layers like a watercolor tableau. All you can do is keep painting. Watercolor is the solo project of Ohio musician Ian Chandler. “Permanence” is out now.

“Permanence” is a distillation of the regret and sorrow I feel because of the person I used to be. It’s a reflection on how that past self haunts me even as I try to make new changes. The pain I caused will always be frozen in time, but I have to remember that I’m not that person anymore—and that someday I’ll find a way to not rewind.”

This track is 7 minutes long, but it might be my favorite track with such length. It is so freaking beautiful. I have goosebumps while listening to it. This Ohio-based musician is masking amazing emo-slowcore music that you can easily fall in love with. I needed a track like this one so badly and I was not aware of that. It has some healing attributes for me, it helps me to call down and be present in the moment. I have been struggling with anxiety and depression past few months and this is exactly the kind of music that helps with that. I just want to put headphones on, listen to this on repeat, and just disappear from the world for a while. Ian, you made a great song and I am really thankful for it. Cannot wait, to hear music from you in the future. In the meantime, I will just play this on a loop and cry from happiness.
