Cam Blake – “Before It Was Time to Let Go”


A crisp, jangly single from Vancouver-based producer and artist Cam Blake, “Before It Was Time to Let Go” comes via his upcoming EP, Finding My Way Home.

Refreshing guitar tones correspond cohesively with shimmering synth lines in the initial verses, giving way to Blake’s lush vocal presence. The track’s dreamy, contemplative beginnings excel into a soaring enthusiasm as the first minute approaches, as Blake asks “why’s it gotta be so hard with you?” amidst a synth-laden shimmering and chirpy, hooky guitars. “Before It Was Time to Let Go” is a consuming, easily engaging success from Cam Blake.

Blake told Canadian Beats the following about the track:

“It’s the outlier of the EP, seeing as it’s more of an upbeat song, but regardless, it’s a really fun track. The music video is very silly and follows a toxic relationship between me and a clay version of myself.”
