2 months ago 21-year-old UK native, Tom Tripp, released his first single “Aurelia,” which he wrote and produced the music for. Need I mention again that the 21-year-old produced this track? Or that this is his first single? With addicting and colorful island style instrumentation, Tom’s message behind the song provides more depth than you would expect. Here is my stab at his meaning:
Though he does keep the song partially ambiguous, Tom makes it evident that there is a lust for an “Aurelia” in his life; one could infer that is the name of the female he’s pursuing in this situation. Tom ask questions throughout the song: who’s in love with her? What if I found out? What if there’s doubt? Implying that maybe there’s more to their story. But as stated earlier, the songs ambiguity makes it tricky to decipher.
The song toys with the idea of him giving her so much time and attention, he realizes that it might not be reciprocated back equally; ultimately wasting his time and efforts. He reminds himself of this conclusion throughout the song. The lyrics “so golden in my mind, but I’m wasting all my time” leads me to believe he enjoys the idea of her but knows nothing may come from it. Infatuation can do some crazy things to people. But it helps to have music like this in your playlist.
