New Music: Georgi Krastev

It’s not easy to create a sound so beautifully emotive in such a delicate and subtle way. Yet Kassel-based singer-songwriter Georgi Krastev has done just that with his new single ‘Light Years’.

The song looks into those feelings we all go through when a relationship begins to fall apart; the emptiness, the frustration, the glimmers of hope, the bittersweet end, and the lingering regret.

“I wrote this song after the end of one of my first relationships. I was very immature and inexperienced and, typical of me, instead of accepting reality, I tried forcing things to work the way I wanted them to. Diamonds are made under pressure but, given enough force, anything will break. And so it did.”
