“Stay Beside Me” is a dazzling slice of electro-pop yearning from North Carolina-based artist and producer Tridakk. “Why don’t you stay beside me?” vocals ask amidst the spacey synth pulsations, conveying a sincere yearning alongside the spritzy synth tones. The vocals fade in the final minute as a playful synth gliding emerges alongside a backing wordless vocal lushness. A dreamy, spacey atmospheric converges with punchy vocal hooks throughout this catchy success.
Tridakk elaborates on the track: “This is a song I wrote depicting the feelings I have when there’s that one particular person I would give anything to be with but can’t. A longing for something that deep down you know will never come to fruition no matter how hard you try. Floating into the aether together, In the wrong directions.”
