Los Angeles, CA – Recording artist and producer glibs has released his heartfelt new single, “What I Want,” examining the vulnerability of opening up to someone and the lack of communication that follows when those feelings are not reciprocated, giving insight into the mind of young love. glibs specializes in turning his life experiences into compelling emotional narratives that many can relate to. “What I Want” is now available to stream and download on all platforms worldwide.
“The process of writing this song was a familiar place for me,” explains glibs. “I found myself sitting at my keyboard building an arrangement that ended up provoking these certain feelings inside me.” “What I Want” is a down-tempo track that explores his unguarded side. Melancholic vocals are partnered with a soothing lo-fi beat to bring listeners into the mind of a young romantic. He recognizes his feelings of love, but the communication feels one-sided. “What I Want” is me sharing my lived experience,” says glibs. “That feeling when you make it known what you want from someone, but you’re met with uncertainty. I’ve learned to always stand behind my truth when I find myself in a situation like that. That’s the only way to find what you want.” Soft percussion and dreamy vocals draw the listener into the introspective environment he creates, embellishing an imperfect romance narrative that provides a different perspective of being young and in love. “What I Want” was written and produced by glibs.
