US-based singer-songwriter, producer and filmmaker Michael X. Schallert under his moniker omyügen unveils a story of isolation and pain of struggling with anxiety as an introvert on “Dark Corner,” an innovative and layered anthem rooted in a sombre stretch of emotion.
Opening with tender pianos, the track erupts with a gritty trap groove as glitchy yet husky vocal lines offer a hazy vibe. The smoky musicality is elevated by melancholic lyrics to make for an emotionally potent and relatable listen.
Delving with sensitivity and vulnerability into the mind of someone feeling alienated by anxiety, the ballad is steeped in experimental touches that unveil the musician’s versatile blend of pop, electronic, and a multitude of other genres.
With passion for music that began at a young age to kicking off his music journey in 2016, omyügen’s emotive artistry is one that manages to be intricate and accessible as it engages a broad spectrum of listeners.
