We love music that blends elements from different styles, to create something truly unique. “Blindfold” by At Mos is an enigmatic spoken-word voyage that transcends conventional musical boundaries. Hailing from the heart of Paris, this alternative hip-hop ensemble delivers a gripping narrative that defies easy categorization, immersing listeners in an auditory landscape that challenges preconceptions.
With an enthralling vocal performance at its core, “Blindfold” weaves a captivating tale that melds orchestral, hip-hop, and electronica influences into a rich tapestry of sound. The spoken verses are a poetic exploration of emotion, veering between the realms of hope and nostalgia, growth and resignation. The verses’ introspective depth is underscored by an uplifting and unifying hook that provides a striking contrast.
Strings, guitars, and ambient soundscapes are meticulously layered to envelop the listener in a cinematic sonic experience. The spoken word style of At Mos lends an intimate, contemplative quality to the song, inviting us to reflect on the universal themes it explores.
Speaking on the new single “Blindfold”, At Mos explain
“Blindfold was meant as a journey, a three-part story that wavers between hope and nostalgia, growth and resignation. We wanted this duality of moods to be at the center of the writing process, where the introspective verses are punctuated by a more uplifting and unifying hook. Strings, guitars, and ambience sound design were brought in and layered to give the instrumental a cinematic feel. Although very contemplative, it retains a universal quality that makes it one of the most compelling and moving songs we wrote for our upcoming album.“
