It is possible to feel like you are transported to a different world when listening to certain songs. Perhaps the soothing vocals or the almost serene production do the trick for newcomer runo plum as she showcases beautifully showcases that and more on a pair of new songs. Honing her craft as a musician and songwriter for a bit now (there’s early songs aplenty on Soundcloud if you’re interested), runo is reaching new heights and it’s time for the world to start tuning in.
Both songs are bound to give you chills from the first few seconds, especially the first track of the two “Arms Open Wide”. An elongated vocal accompanied by a soothing instrumental are factors that make this song so calming and cozy. The self-deprecating lyrics reflect on the past relationships while questioning emotions’ legitimacy.
There will never be another time I will lay on the floor in self-reflection without these two songs playing.
