Gabriel Garzón-Montano: Trial
on 14 September 2016
Brooklyn-based Gabriel Garzón-Montano (whose "6 8" was sampled in Drake's "Jungle") has just released "Trial," a gorgeous but solemn track and video in which the singer/songwriter/producer wonders about ambition and the future. Befitting the somber lyrics ("Maybe I'll play the game and trade my trust for fame / and still be just as lonely"), the accompanying video is lush but depicts isolation—with Garzón-Montano floating on the ocean, atop a beautiful bed of flowers. Garzón-Montano also just announced he has signed with Peanut Butter Wolf’s Stones Throw Records.
