Unleased on September 8th, “Pull That String” immerses listeners in a world that effortlessly blends the raw, beautiful sounds of Indie Rock with the emotionally charged ambiance of Alt-R&B. And thanks to its rich vocals, stunning performances, thoughtful lyrics, masterful production, and impeccable production, “Pull That String” is the ideal late-night listening companion. Let’s get into all of that now.

“Pull That String” unlocks with electronic guitar licks, but the opening lines, “As she worships the sky, she’s free / The brine, the salt, the sand that trapped my feet,” develop the tone for the song, showing an affinity for the type of freedom depicted by the sky and the sea. This desire for freedom is balanced with a sensation of imprisonment, symbolized by the salt and sand that appear to impair the singer. While Silk Sewn Dream transports us to the golden age of music, where smooth grooves and warm voices could make you feel as if you were floating on clouds, their vocals are the cherry on top of this flavorful song and are somewhat therapeutic. Their harmonized voices glide effortlessly over the tune, providing an idyllic and ethereal quality that draws you into the song’s narrative. Their performance is flawless; their chemistry is apparent, and it’s this synergy that propels their performance to new heights.

At its core, the central theme of “Pull That String” is the need for emotional release and consolation or relief in the context of a relationship. The lyrics convey a sense of imprisonment, with the storyteller feeling tied by their emotions and reliant on another person for peace and freedom. The recurring motif of ‘pulling the string’ represents the cyclical nature of seeking validation, support, or emotional release from a specific individual, even if that person is a source of pain or limitation. This is a song about the complicated dynamics that may exist in relationships, where individuals may find themselves torn between a need for self-reliance and a need for connection. Also, it investigates the premise that we sometimes intentionally relinquish our emotional freedom to others in the hope that they can soothe our inner problems. To me, the composition of the song is its best element, and that is what truly defines it. It’s a song that would readily entice anyone, and as it progresses, it would completely engross you in its beauty.
