Side effects of listening to Langston Bleu’s newest single may include a two-step, nodding your head to the beat and hitting repeat on your favorite streaming service. The two new tracks from the rising musician take listeners through two different views of the same love story. While the lyrics may sound similar, the production and delivery of each track drastically differ. On Side A, Langston Bleu glides over the infectiously upbeat production as he sings about going through the repetitive ups and downs of a seemingly toxic relationship.
“Hey baby, we’ve been off for a couple of days. These are some things that we should not say. Why do we always play these games? If we did it before, we’re going to do it again. There’s too much to give up, so we both give in. Next thing, you know what’s happening. We’re right back where we started, again,” Lanston Bleu sings.
“We just keep going through the motions.”
While Side A attempts to dance away the pain of this rocky relationship, Side B forces the listener to sit in it. Over slower, more emotive production, Langston Bleu revisits the same story, but it feels all too different.
Side A is what the toxic relationship feels like when everything’s going right and you’re in sync. Side B is what the same relationship feels like at 3 a.m. when you sit and think about what’s really going on. In either scenario, it’s great to listen to when Langston Bleu is the one singing.
