The Song

I began this song sometime in 2019 with a concept in mind. I wanted to create something which reflected the quote "Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened". The track was to begin and end rather somber, but liven up towards the middle. I wanted something which reflects how you'd think back at certain times or people, perhaps ones that you have loved and lost. Initially, you may be sad that they are not there with you, but then you think of all the great times you had, bringing you much needed happiness in the time of despair.

Why the Swedish title?

A working title for the track was 'Reminisce' but I felt that already had a few lofi releases under that name so in order to create some diversity I had the title translated. Whilst it's not a direct translation, it was close enough that it matched the vision of the track.

The Visuals

Balancing personal projects with client work can be a challenge, so for this release I wanted simplicity. With the song being melancholic, I wanted some visuals to portray a scene of loneliness. Night time is most often when I think of the past, lost in my own trail of thought.

Released on November 6th, 2020.

Mirage is a collaboration between my good friend, Matthew Quinn, and I. It began when he paid me a visit prior to his venture to Australia. We spoke of some potential collaboration ideas and this is where Mirage comes from. The footage of Nepal was not captured with an intention in mind, nor was it captured with professional-grade equipment, so it was an exciting challenge to transform it into a refreshing visual story.

The opening and closing shots of the music video are on a boat, suggesting that everything in between was fabricated. A dream of what was or what’s to come, much like a shoreline to those lost at sea – a mirage.

Officially self-released on June 8th, 2018 by Stu Kelly.
