First of all, I’d like to mention that the song is a great mix of a vintage indie sound blended with a modern-day story. Taos idea of starting the song was really nice and easily will catch your ears by well-made guitar picking leading to his strong voice, especially the chorus of the song is very catchy indeed. Okay, when you listen to spill tab‘s voice, it’s not just a combined female vocal to the track, we’re talking here about a promising indie-pop star everyone! The song structure is very impressive indeed, the only thing that I felt it needs more work is the mixing of the song, I believe, there are some levelling issues. When you check the story of the song, you will find it very interesting indeed, and somehow it expresses each one of us on a certain phrase: “it’s a song I wrote when I was going through a rough patch. I was in the midst of a bout of depression brought out by a stagnation of my career and wasn’t really leaving the house. It was winter, which made things worse. What really helped me feel better was remembering that career/music isn’t everything and appreciating the relationships around me, specifically that of my girlfriend at the time. She was a shining light through my dark time, reminding me that as important as your goals are, connection and love is the foundation of feeling good and whole.” – Aaron explained.

Actually, I salute him for choosing spill tab, she was a great addition for the track for sure: “I had always wanted to add a female vocalist to “Loneliness” as a re-release. I thought with the right artist, the song would be really special as a duet. Then I was listening to the Spotify playlist “Lorem” one day and this song “Calvaire” by spill tab came on. I immediately loved it and thought the artist’s voice was incredible – so I reached out to see if she would be interested. I’m honoured that she was and then when I finally heard what she had written I was blown away. Her vocals are so beautiful and haunting and in my opinion, add a really unique perspective/ vibe to one of my favourite songs I’ve ever written.” – he explained. There’s no doubt that ‘Loneliness Pt. II’ is one of my 2020 favourite indie songs so far!
