Now Playing: Marie Dahlstrom – 'Like Sand' (ft. Beau Diako)

Wednesday, February 19, 2020

With her highly anticipated debut album Like Sand currently on its way, London-based Danish artist Marie Dahlstrøm has unveiled a preview of what's to come with the album's title track. The song also features British guitarist Beau Diako.

Fusing an enchanting mix of jazz and R&B, 'Like Sand' sounds like heaven. The track features delicate yet warm instrumentation, including subtle percussion, bright piano arrangements, intricate and impressive guitar playing by Diako, soothing vocals, as well as sounds of nature beaming amidst the instruments.

According to Dahlstrøm, 'Like Sand' is about fear, "It’s about caring about someone — but expressing it in the wrong way - the fear of losing. It is something I think a lot of people can relate to; either being treated this way - or treating someone this way. Fundamentally, it is very human to fear loss, but holding on to someone too tight, will only make them hold on to you a little less. With this song, I hope that people who are treating their loved ones this way will meet this behaviour and feeling with patience, awareness and willingness to change."
