The sound for ‘Eclipsed’ is crafted by incorporating bouncing synthesizers, afro-rhythmic drum beats and perfectly placed guitars. Van T’s haunting vocal carries an ambivalent message of escaping one’s dependencies above a dreamy soundscape, climaxing in a final psychedelic ascent.
“Eclipsed represents the state of being overshadowed by someone, knowing that only once you find the strength to break away will you be free to come into your own. It’s about fighting the belief that you belong in someone else’s shadow and resisting the urge to value the familiarity of their darkness over your own light,” explains front woman, Chantel Van T.
