‘Gravity’ by UK producer Diamond Eyes (Joshua Marment), a hotly anticipated NCS label return is out for release today.
The track, an uplifting future bass cut that carries a juxtaposing lyrical thread, is a heartfelt reflection on Marment’s darkest time.
“Sometimes you just have to let everything fall around you, let the cards fall and deal with what’s happening.”- songs theme
“‘Gravity’ is about hitting pause on life when everything falls to the ground,” he explained further. “I needed to stop and take stock before I moved on, something I think is relatable to pretty much everyone. You let the cards fall, breathe and find your peace.”
What happened in ‘Joshua Marment’ personal life that inspired him to come up with “Gravity”?
In 2016 his best friend, American singer and The Voice finalist Christina Grimmie was gunned down in a tragic murder/suicide outside The Plaza Live in Orlando, Florida in front of fans. And, having to put an end to an abusive relationship the same year, plunged the British artist into a deep and lengthy period of grief and mourning.
Music became, he said, a “place of vulnerability’ where he could be utterly honest and open with himself as he progressed through intense therapy.
What are Marment’s goals for 2020?
Marment says that he now finally feels ready to step back into the spotlight. He is all set to fulfill the early promise he showed with work like the Skrillex-toppling ‘Night Life’ EP and his widely lauded collaboration with Grimmie, ‘Stay With Me’. For fans around the world, his latest NCS release will hopefully open the doors to much more work over 2020 and beyond.
DIAMOND EYES ‘GRAVITY’ IS OUT FOR FULL GLOBAL RELEASE ON NCS FROM JANUARY 17TH 2020.
