How wonderful it can be to find a song that fills a space, catches on a hook, and dives deep — all at once. 1st Base Runner creates gothic pop that reveals itself in layers and pulses.
Tim Husmann is an electronic indie artist from Texas and the name behind 1st Base Runner. “All Thoughts” is the first track from upcoming album Seven Years of Silence, which is due for release in late Spring.
“All Thoughts” is rhythmic and grand in its emotive darkness. To match the crunchy eeriness of the melody, the clip explores the uncanny. All in black-and-white, the clip shows a humanistic figure stepping down on a piano. Cut to a video game, then again to the creation of a microchip. Who is in control here, and of what?
What can you feel, and who will wake you up when you can’t bring yourself to rise? 1st Base Runner’s questions float through the track and linger alongside the melody.
