Yotto – The One You Left Behind
Grab your loved ones and hold them close because Yotto’s new track titled ‘The One You Left Behind‘ is a chilling, emotional track. This club instrumental features the elegant, Icelandic vocals of Vok singer, Margaret Ran Magnusdottir. The Helsinki producer has done it again by giving us a heartbreak anthem to resonate with.
Powered by a compelling low-end bass line and groove, floating synths begin the track and slowly crescendo into Margaret’s ethereal singing of the words “listen closely”. This record exudes drama, distress, and profound contemplation with the lyrics “Can you feel? Can you feel my heartbeat? Not the one, just the one you left behind”. Margret’s moody Scandinavian tone fit the straightforward club vibe perfectly. You feel a wave of emotion as it starts and then breathe a sigh of relief when it ends. There is relentless joy in letting go of anything through this single.
