Today’s Track Of The Day, from Sheffield’s Bring Me The Horizon, is their massive masterpiece: “Can You Feel My Heart”. The track was featured on their 2013 album Sempiternal.
“Can You Feel My Heart” has a grand and swelling sound, drumbeats that hit deep to your core, and distorted cries that echo parts of ourselves calling out for attention. Its repeated melody and light electronics are weighed down by grounding drums, pained vocals, and guitars that feel both powerful and defeated at the same time.
“Can You Feel My Heart” is a dose of realness and a sobering reminder of the weight of emotion we all have the potential to feel. In this sense, it’s uniting and satisfying and a powerful reminder that we’re never alone.
“I’m scared to get close and I hate being alone.
I long for that feeling to not feel at all.
The higher I get, the lower I’ll sink.
I can’t drown my demons, they know how to swim.”
“Can You Feel My Heart” is an addictive track that’s beautifully done. Have a listen to it as well as the rest of Sempiternal on Spotify or with its official video.
