Wrabel kills that whole emotion thing on his new single, “Bloodstain.”
Wrabel is flying under the radar for a while, having amazing singles that haven’t quite broken out in the way they should have, then came radio hit “11 Blocks.”
“Bloodstain” is very different to “Blocks,” it takes a lot more of a minimalist synth-pop ballad-esque approach, and it suits his voice wonderfully.
The understated beat allows Wrabel’s vocals to soar, especially in the bridge where the production practically cuts out for a second.
The main vocal point in this song is the repetition in the chorus, it adds an extra layer to what would be a straight synth-pop track.
Lyrically the song discusses the effect love and heartbreak has on you as a person over time.
“Been in and out of love since I was 19/Opening my heart has left a bloodstain/And I don’t know how to make a man stay/Maybe I’ve been putting my heart out in the wrong way”
Also, props to Wrabel for not using gender neutral terms like a lot of gay artists, more should follow suit!
