Channo - Underwater Heart
Channo is the work of Australian producer and vocalist Luchii, and Underwater Heart is a new single that captures a strange and disorientated feeling. With its weird, wonky bass and strung out guitars, Underwater Heart is a little otherworldly, the feeling of swimming alone in your own bubble, just hoping someone pops it. I love how it bobs along, the melodies slipping in and out of my mind.
The music here is deliberately mysterious, with Channo deliberately wanting to take a different approach at a time where everything feels fixated on content and exposure. Here he aims for mystique, conjuring an experimental and yet accessible sound.
So Underwater Heart is deliberately left open to interpretation. Even in making it Luchii found himself identifying things hidden inside that weren’t even initially intended to be there, interpreting it in different ways. The song started as a piece about pushing people out of your life - hiding your emotion beneath the surface and yet at the same time longing for connection... Waiting for something to happen.
