PREMIERE: VINCENT BLACK & MARLINBEATS / IN MY HEAD

ISOLATION BOUGHT US ALL SOME TIME TO LOOK WITHIN OURSELVES AND SOMETIMES THAT INTROSPECTION CAN BE OVERWHELMING. VINCENT BLACK, THE 22 YEAR-OLD LONG ISLAND NATIVE REFLECTS ON SOME OF HIS OWN INTERNAL TRIBULATIONS FROM 2020 OVER A LUSCIOUS TRACK ON HIS LATEST SINGLE, “IN MY HEAD.” 

BEING A CLASSICALLY TRAINED PIANIST AND PICKING UP A BROAD SPECTRUM OF INFLUENCES THROUGHOUT HIS TIME STUDYING MUSIC IN CHICAGO, BLACK HAS DEVELOPED A GIFT FOR CONNECTING INFECTIOUS MELODIES AND INTROSPECTIVE LYRICS. WITH LINES LIKE, “IT ALL FALLS DOWN, BUT IT’S ALRIGHT, I CAN’T BREATHE, I MISS MY LIFE,” VINCENT BLACK TOUCHES A SOFT SPOT DEEP IN THE THOUGHTS OF SO MANY OF US. THE TRACK IS CARRIED BY ATMOSPHERIC GUITARS AND HARD-HITTING DRUM MACHINES WHICH MELT TOGETHER UNDERNEATH THE INTIMATE, LAYERED VOCALS THAT BLACK DELIVERS. THE TRACK PROVIDES A SENSE OF TRANQUILITY AND IT FEELS LIKE THE DEEP BREATH WE ALL TOOK AT THE END OF 2020. THE CHEMISTRY BEHIND THE SONG IS A PRODUCT OF COLLABORATION WITH LONG ISLAND PRODUCTION TRIO, MARLINBEATS WHO ARE ACCREDITED FOR PRODUCING FOR ARTISTS SUCH AS ZAK DOWNTOWN AND KG PICASSO. BOTH VINCENT BLACK AND MARLINBEATS CONTRIBUTED AUTHENTIC PIECES TO THE PUZZLE AND THE CHEMISTRY BETWEEN THEM IS IMMACULATE. 

“THE SONG IS ABOUT THE VICISSITUDES OF LIFE. THE RECORD TOUCHES ON THE LOSS OF INNOCENCE, AND SANITY. “IN MY HEAD” REFERS TO THE ACCIDENTAL SUFFOCATION DUE TO COMPARISON, AND LUST. THOUGHTS YOU HAVE ON A LATE NIGHT DRIVE, THOUGHTS THAT DANCE AROUND YOUR CONSCIOUS AT NIGHT, VICES THAT YOU REACH FOR IN TIMES OF UNCERTAINTY, THEY CAN CONSUME YOU. IT IS IMPORTANT THAT WE ALL STEP BACK, AND REMIND OURSELVES THAT EVERYTHING ONE DAY IS GOING TO BE OK. “IT ALL FALLS DOWN, BUT IT’S ALRIGHT” MEANS JUST THAT.”

“IN MY HEAD” IS JUST THE SECOND TRACK FROM VINCENT BLACK AND IT IS ONE THAT WILL, WITHOUT A DOUBT IN MY MIND, BE HEARD BY MANY. WHETHER YOU’RE ON A NIGHT DRIVE, LOOKING FOR SOME MUSICAL THERAPY TO QUIET YOUR INNER THOUGHTS OR JUST TRYING TO HEAR A GOOD SONG, YOU WILL THANK YOURSELF FOR ADDING THIS ON TO THE QUEUE. FOLLOW VINCENT AND STAY TUNED AS HE CONTINUES TO LET US IN ON HIS THOUGHTS AND BLESSES US WITH HIS MUSIC.
