In 2001, the legendary Aphex Twin blessed us all with this two-minute piano instrumental off of the album, Drukqs.
Since there isn’t any lyrics, there isn’t a whole lot to tell you about the meaning of this song. It’s up to you to interpret whatever feelings this piece gives you.
For me, it’s something along the lines of comfort, melancholy, wonderment and peace. This feels like something you would listen to on repeat while lying on your back in a field of grass, staring at the clouds on a beautiful day but also something you could play while you sit inside, wrapped in a cozy blanket and watch the rain run down your window pane.
It’s such a strange and wonderful piece of music that gives off so many contrasting feelings and emotions, it’s hard to pinpoint just what it means.
