BLXXM of Bristol, UK recently released “Nothing New” on his own YouTube channel. He has become a staple artist here at All Metal Everything and for this most recent release he has decided to slow it down.
Nothing New is a piano ballad, catchy and emotional. This song is mellow especially in contrast to his other released content; showing creative potential and promise.
In the video BLXXM adorns his signature mask as he stands before the ocean.
Grey skies over a beach covered by sharp rocks and seaweed. This is a portrait piece… showcasing an artist who sees only a grey and murky future. Before him lies opportunity as vast as the ocean and yet it is bleak and plagued by feelings of hopelessness.
In the final scene we find BLXXM in his room drinking a bottle of whiskey and listening to music. Maybe his contemplative moments by the ocean were all a dream. A metaphor for a silently tormented mind.
This song is so simple and I think that’s why it is so evocative. Nothing New is introspective, relatable, and a beautiful piece of art. I have no doubt that BLXXM has a long and successful career ahead of him. These are the kind of artists I get so excited about. He has put his full heart and energy into every song he has released and it makes me want more. That energy makes me come back and listen again and again.
Underneath the flashy Trap sound that has dominated the pop charts for the past few years; there is a beast bellowing, waiting for its time.
An undertow of abrasive and subversive music is aching to hit a wider audience.
