hidden in plain sight(walked away) by CHIEF BROOM

You know how some songs just grab you by the soul and don’t let go? “hidden in plain sight (walked away)” by CHIEF BROOM is that kind of jam. It’s not just a tune you casually bob your head to; it’s a full-on emotional rollercoaster that takes you places you didn’t even know you needed to go.

Picture this: Grunge and post-punk had a love child, and it’s been raised on a diet of raw emotion and existential musings. That’s the sonic vibe we’re talking about here. It’s like Kurt Cobain and Ian Curtis had a jam session in the afterlife, and this track is what they left us. The guitar riffs are moody, the drums are like a heartbeat, and the keys? Man, they’re the cherry on top. It’s a soundscape that’s as complex as your last relationship.

Now, let’s talk lyrics. This isn’t your run-of-the-mill, “Oh, I’m sad, life sucks” kind of song. Nah, this is poetry set to music. It dives deep into the abyss of human emotion—loss, addiction, the agony of growing up, and the even greater agony of not growing up fast enough. It’s the kind of song that makes you want to call your ex, then wisely decide to call your therapist instead. It’s heavy stuff, but it’s also liberating in a way that only brutal honesty can be.

The emotional gravitas of this track is amped up to eleven when you consider the backstory. TJ Tuck, the co-founder, is like the ghost in the machine here. His untimely passing leaves a void, but it’s a void filled with purpose and passion. The track becomes a tribute, a eulogy, and a call to action all rolled into one. It’s like TJ is still jamming with the band, his spirit infused in every note and lyric.

And can we talk about the production for a sec? It’s got that DIY vibe but with a professional sheen, like your favorite indie film. Recorded in a childhood home, mixed and produced by industry pros—it’s the best of both worlds. It’s like eating a gourmet meal in your old high school cafeteria; familiar yet elevated.

This isn’t just a song; it’s a mood, a vibe, a state of being. It’s a mirror reflecting the messy, beautiful chaos that is life. And honestly, it’s the kind of raw authenticity that the world needs more of right now. So go ahead, hit play, and let CHIEF BROOM take you on a journey you won’t soon forget.
