‘I’m slipping way/ Losing control / Can’t see the horizon / I’m sliding off the edge of the world’
The chorus lyrics of the new single from NuBorg – a Norwegian songwriter releasing her debut album track by track, month by month – perfectly sum up the feeling of the song. Hypnotic, dreamlike and evenly paced, ‘Sliding off the Edge of the World’ gives you the feeling that you’re doing just that. Slowly, but surely, sliding away.
With repeat listens, the effect grows – the excellent production, the simple but effective arrangements, that bassline – this is beautiful music, without a doubt.
