A delightful song despite of its sad backdrop, LearningToDive’s new single “Promenade” is a bittersweet melody that brings both peace and just a little bit of weariness. With his 80’s influenced style, composer Bravo Bonez has just released the last single before the launch of his debut album “Norwegian Pop” on 02/04/21.
“Promenade” tells the story of two fictional individuals who start to feel a natural attraction to each other, start going for walks in their lunch time through Hyde Park, London, and eventually they fall in love. The problem being, that both of them are already on dedicated relationships…
So, doubts, fears and lies start to arise, and the couple of lovers must make a decision, which eventually leads to fighting, parting … and crying. Here, Bonez tries to reflect the bitter, age-old problem of humans being able to love more than one person at a time, but most of the time just being able to be with one.
LearningToDive is used to deliver more pop-punk, high energy tracks, but this time he stepped it back with a more chilled ambient, mixed with a romantic vibe and dreamy retro-synths, carried up by a driving 808, giving the song a perfect mix of movement and stillness. Perfect for your morning stroll, or your lonely nights!
Promenade was written and composed by Bravo Bonez and co-produced by Greg Haver (Manic Street Preachers, Mel C). An interesting fact of the production is that the song was made across different Studios between two different continents, as it was recorded at Ocean Sound Recordings in Norway and PureSound Studios in New Zealand, engineered and mixed at Modern World Studios in the UK, and mastered in Nashville.
It also features additional vocals by Alba Rose and additional percussion by Greg Haver. Engineered and mixed by Clint Murphy (Enter Shikari, 50 Cent).
It is said that LTD upcoming album will be a love letter to the 80’s musical genres, principally post-punk, synth-pop, new-wave and the New-Romantic movement, and also Bonez’s exploration of personal, political and societal ideas.
