What makes Woodkid such a formidable artist is the way in which he crafts soundscapes that swell, spark and soften to create atmospheres that draw you in from the very first note or beat. Whether it’s through fragmented electronic and industrialised drumbeats that pound away or through gentle piano compositions that convey sentiments like no other – Woodkid’s production is a character within his songs that truly transports the listener away from their reality.
That is exactly the case with ‘Horizons Into Battlegrounds’, a gorgeous new single from his forthcoming sophomore album ‘S16’ which is October 16th. Presenting an exclusive preview of the cut as part of his COLORS ENCORE, Woodkid takes your breath away as his rich, haunting tones wash over the piano-led soundbed with a gentle yet painful touch as he asks “Can I hold on, can I hold onto you?”. Experience the magical performance of ‘Horizons Into Battlegrounds’ above and if you haven’t already, be sure to check out Woodkid’s rendition of ‘Pale Yellow’ whilst you await the release of ‘S16’.
