LANDON CONRATH GRACES OUR HEADPHONES WITH THIS SELF-REFLECTIVE, RADICALLY HONEST, LATE-NIGHT THOUGHTS TYPE OF TRACK. “2AM” GIVES OFF A PALPABLE ENERGY REFLECTING A QUICK HEARTBEAT AND REMINISCENT MEMORIES OF DRIVING RECKLESSLY WITH FRIENDS. COMPLIMENTED BY GENTLE VOCALS, CONRATH SHARES A LIGHTHEARTED CHORUS THAT EXPLORES THE RELATABLE REGRET, QUESTIONING PAST DECISIONS AND LOVE.
LANDON CONRATH IS A SINGER-SONGWRITER, MULTI-INSTRUMENTALIST, AND PRODUCER WHOSE CAREER HAS SUBSTANTIALLY SHOT UP THROUGHOUT THE PAST TWO YEARS. WITH MULTIPLE SINGLES RELEASED, INCLUDING “PIECES” AND “ACETONE,” CONRATH CONTINUES HIS REIGN OF TEEN-INFUSED EUPHORIC MEMORIES AND MELODIES. THE MINNEAPOLIS-NATIVE CONFIRMS HIS PLACE IN INDIE-POP WITH HIS NEWEST SINGLE, “2AM.”
“The song started with a guitar riff and a surprise snowstorm in late October. The melodies and instruments feel happy-go-lucky but the song wrestled with the idea of being stuck with feelings for someone that you don’t even necessarily want. Feelings that are unreciprocated but nevertheless are prevalent in your mind at all times. The uplifting mood of the song paired with the lyrics was always something I wanted to do in one of my songs.”
THE INTENSITY OF LANDON’S SONGWRITING IS BEAUTIFULLY SOFTENED BY HIS CHOSEN DICTION. USING ENGAGING LYRICS AND SITUATIONS, THE YOUNG ARTIST INVITES AUDIENCES TO SHARE IN HIS PERSONAL EXPERIENCE. HE SINGS, “IT’S 2AM ON THE PHONE / YOU GOT ME WISHING WE WERE MORE THAN FRIENDS / I’M LIVING IN AN EMOTIONAL HELL / TAKING KICKS TO THE BELT / AND LATELY GOT ME WISHING THAT MAYBE / IT’S 2AM ON THE PHONE AGAIN.” THE EMPATHETIC RESPONSE IS DRIVEN HOME BY THE AIRY, SUMMERY MELODY PRESENT THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRETY OF THE TRACK.
LANDON CONRATH ENCOURAGES DANCE, REFLECTION, AND INTENTIONAL DECISIONS IN HIS SINGLE, “2AM.” WITH AN IMPULSIVE ENERGY DRIVING THE GROOVE OF HIS MUSIC, CONRATH IS SURE TO KEEP US UP (UNTIL 2AM!) WITH HIS NEW SINGLE.
