Recio sings about isolation, his quarantine experience
Up-and-coming artist Recio expresses the familiar feeling of being adrift and isolated in a constantly moving world in his self-penned debut release under Tarsier Records, “Tired Eyes”—a reflection of his personal feelings during the quarantine.
“I realized by talking to my friends that a lot of us are tired of the current condition of studying and working in the online setting,” he explained.
“We were all shoved into a system we were unfamiliar with, which resulted in a startling decline in everyone’s morale. I hope this song helps the people who need to hear it feel less alone in our current world of isolation.”
The lo-fi (low-fidelity) track which will be part of his upcoming EP is accompanied by calm guitar strumming influenced by Frank Ocean and Florence + The Machine. It evokes wistfulness by remembering better days and missing out on many things.
Recio, who specializes in indie, lo-fi, and R&B music, launched his music career in 2020 through his independent EP “Music for Your Valentine.”
