Danish, London based soulstress Marie Dahlstrøm, reunites with LA-based songwriter and producer Jeremy Passion on her new single – Through Your Eyes.
The soulful duo last combined on their dreamlike cover version of Forget Me Nots (2014) and their reunion gives birth to another majestic result.
Through Your Eyes is an impassioned yet dreamy R&B duet with soft as cotton piano keys and soothingly mellow beats.
Marie has always had excellent vocal control that effortlessly resonates deep emotions. Together with Jeremy Passion, they complement each other superbly. Through their harmony of voices is the tale of a couple navigating the complexities of modern-day relationships – misunderstandings, mistakes, and disagreements.
Speaking about the new single, Marie begins: “Jeremy and I started writing ‘Through Your Eyes’ back in 2014, but we never found the right time to return to the song, until now, and we finished it remotely earlier this year. The lyrical theme of the song was important to us, to convey the right emotions…”
Jeremy continues: “The theme of the song ultimately revolves around the power of empathy. The ability to try and see things through another person’s perspective isn’t sung about much in popular music; it’s usually about who’s wrong or who’s right or just breaking things off when the going gets tough. It’s about seeking first to understand, and maybe through that, find peace in the process.“
The production by DanDiggas (known for his production and writing work for Mahalia), succeeds in creating 5+mins of heavenly, soulful escapism.
