After “[crawling] out of a sarlacc pit of depression,” IG88 has returned to bless our ears with some more of his incredible music. To be honest, one doesn’t even need to know Branden’s been depressed, because it’s something that can genuinely be felt on his latest single “Want.” Despite its inspiration, “beautiful” is the only appropriate adjective I can think of to describe this new track. The way the acoustic guitar floats above the drums is incredibly captivating, and once the distorted synths are thrown in the mix, these sounds coalesce into what might be one of IG88’s most textured songs to date. It’s just gorgeous.
In any case, I’m glad he’s doing well and he’s found an outlet to rid himself of the toxic energy.
