Undertow – the latest melodiously song of German singer and songwriter Andre Westerholt alias Coumarin, deals with being stuck and letting go. Themes that go well with the autumn mood, just like all trees cast their leaves, releasing something or somebody is very important and inevitable to human life too.
Coumarin tells about the song: “‘Undertow’ has been a very special song for me from the moment I conceived its first musical motifs a few years ago. It is about having to let go of someone when it is palpable that the end of the road has been reached in a relationship. The acceptance of it and the changes that come with a realisation like that is the essence of ‘Undertow’. The track was also created with a lyrical meta level in mind, which I will leave to the listener to explore. When the last piece of the puzzle (a long searched-for lyrical passage) finally fell into place it was an incredibly exciting and overwhelming moment for me, practically ending a multi-year songwriting process. In ‘Undertow’, the feeling of being stuck in certain patterns of life in general and not being able to escape these tenets of reality is something that I feel everyone has to struggle with at at least one point in their lives, especially in times like these.”
