This post was originally published in December 2018.

It’s a recounting of the difficult steps that have already been taken; and of the unwritten bond between partners, struggling to make sense of life together. With letting go, comes freedom, and resolution.

And with every love, there is both pain and ecstasy; this one feels no different.

We’ve come so far
but you have always been my home
I know it’s dark
because one of us
is letting go

Somehow, Shallou captures both the loneliness and the relief of a hard breakup. With a diaphanous melody and a bouncy minimal groove, the message is clear: turning hurt into beauty is a vital life-skill.

LA-based artist/producer Shallou released a new single called 'count on’. It is featured on our CHILL NEW Songwriters playlist.
