Last week, singer/songwriter Edwin Raphael shared his new single “Time To Sink” off his forthcoming EP Staring At Ceilings due out February 26 via Dine Alone Records. The track begins softly, advanced by layered textures of peaceful vocals, sharp horns, refined guitars, and crisp drums. “Time to Sink” embraces stillness even when life continues to shift back and forth with light.
Edwin Raphael shares this of his new single:
“Difficult to write about this song as it’s probably one of the darkest but honest songs I’ve written. This came from a place of hopelessness and bitterness at oneself. However the song also reflects an openness to see it for what it is. It’s a void you’ve been avoiding, it’s an answer you always knew but were scared to dive into. ‘Time to Sink’ is really a tipping point of finally looking under the veil that was most obvious. In many ways I’m glad I wrote this song, I signify it as a moment in time that’s very important to me. I think there’s a lovely and beautiful weightlessness to that last second you feel before hitting the water in a dive, I think this song encapsulates that split second.”
