“Process” isn’t necessarily what you would expect from an artist called Future Soul. The latest from Nicholas Tillery is undoubtedly soulful, but instead of the electronic sounds “future” tends to imply these days, the track is minimalist but powerful piano-pop tune that showcases the Phoenix artist’s stunning voice. Speaking on the meaning behind the track, Nick writes…
Process illustrates a journey of self-discovery through relationships. It speaks to the process of defining one’s self through others and how the result of doing so is not always what it seems. I would often find myself repeating the same relational mistakes, convinced that things would be different the next time with the next person, stuck in a loop.
Listen below. “Process” will appear on Future Soul’s Elastic Love EP, out this September.
