If you are looking for something that is a blend of EDM, soul and indie-pop, then look no further than Lui Hill‘s brand new single, “5000 Miles”. The heady, deeply embedded bass lines drive this track built around Lui Hill‘s gravelly, soulful vocals that reach out and rake your heart with a bevy of emotions. While at times Hill reaches into the stratosphere with his falsetto vocals, it is his ability to dive into the heart that drives the balance of this track.
“5000 Miles” is a storyteller’s story. It is a dark, suspenseful video that eats at the soul, but glimpses the potential exoneration from the grip of darkness. The video, which is shot in LA, was selected for its versatility. “It’s a place that lets your dreams blossom, but easily destroys them too,” Lui Hill said of why he picked the City of Angels for the backdrop.
When you first hear Lui Hill can feel the pain and the longing to climb out of the shadows and depths of despair. His decision to take a trip to South Africa inspired the debut single, “5000 Miles”. “I don’t agree that people who travel are running away from themselves. I think it helps you to get to know yourself better,” Hill stated. “Create distance, and you get closer to the core of things.”
