Shimmering, dreamy guitars initiate the melodic “Tus Dias,” the new track from Los Jardines de Bruselas. The project represents the solo work of Ezequiel de la Parra, from Buenos Aires. Parra achieves a mixture of dreamy soundscapes throughout his work, pairing with lyrical content fond of metaphors that reference the passing of time and existentialism. More contemplative initial verses build to a soaring expansion at 01:03, where multi-layered vocals project an anthemic feel with hypnotic backing guitar strums and serene atmospheric layering.
“Tus Dias” is thematically in line with this aforementioned emphasis on the passing of time and existentialism. “This is a song about time passing by and getting older,” Parra says — emphasizing the chorus’ resonating “This may be your last life, take advantage of the time that is ending.” Parra wrote, recorded, mixed, and mastered the song by himself at home.
“Tus Dias” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of January 2020’ Spotify playlist.
