Giardini Oort – “A Place Without Gravity”


Impressing in recent months with ravishing tracks like “Humans” and “Dark Thoughts,” Italian artist Giardini Oort continues a strong knack for hypnotic atmospheric immersion with his latest single, “A Place Without Gravity.” Ranging from delicate piano arrangements to industrial-friendly guitar vigor, the production takes inspiration from both Nine Inch Nails’ dark aesthetic, in addition to lighter ambient lushness.

Thematically written as a vehicle to help one “find solace and beauty in the vastness of their inner universe,” while looking beyond the mundane, “A Place Without Gravity” moves from gentle piano twinkles into murky, eerie vocals referencing “the darkness” and light. The industrial buzzing and serene piano intermingle beautifully, moving into a second half that embraces both moments of distortion-friendly menacing and contemplative piano-forward bliss.

The track’s eclectic, spontaneous-feeling flow aptly accommodates a meditative theme, one that recognizes the delicate nature of existence and embracing of “the uncertainty of the void.” “A Place Without Gravity” marks another surefire success from Giardini Oort.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Emerging Singles’ Spotify playlist.
