about

The Ghent-based jagged pop-rock quartet Himshe likes to dress up there music in an atmospheric world where David Lynch meets Father Theresa. ‘Stay’ is their second single, a production under the wings of Koen Gisen.

In a dreamy pop-rock feeling, "Stay" tells a story about the need for proximity "on the point of no return." The first notes of the bass and the celestial guitar resonate like a toxic echo and an ethereal tickling "Julee Cruise" voice asks you to "stay" a little longer; "Stay." The whole feels warm and romantic, but somehow also scanty (the shrill distortion synth), the tension is clearly increased.
What initially turned out to be so peaceful and romantic at night suddenly gets a downside. We are overwhelmed by an almost hallucinatory and "haunting" sounding polyphony, this violence rushes through, after which everything is quiet again. The moment we see others 'falling' around us, we seek support from each other. But what if we risk losing that too?

lyrics

Stay with me
I want you to stay with me
Even when I think I’m dying
Of when I can’t stop crying
Please stay with me

They keep on falling
I close my eyes to see
Want to know how much time this will be
with me.

As comfortable this can be when you stay with me
Your hands so healing
while they keep on stealing
all the pain away from me

They keep on falling
I close my eyes to see
Want to know how much time this will be
with me.
