Forgotten Garden - Memoriam - Indie Music Contest Spring 2023
“Memoriam” is a sad and poignant Indie Rock song that takes it's inspiration from the tragic experience of those unable to comfort a loved one at their passing. This anguish is reflected in the chorus “too late to show that I cared, still cared” This situation, of course, was particularly prevalent, during the Covid lockdowns when even the attendance of funerals became problematic. Grief and loss in general permeate this haunting song. The track features a strong bass line, energetic drums and a wistful synth sound that revolve around a constellation of sad, melodic guitar riffs. Soaring above all this is the melancholic and powerful voice of Inês Rebelo. Woven together, the instruments and strong vocals create a powerful Indie song that explores a tragic facet of modern life.
