In this new entry in our ‘Diamonds In The Rough’ category, we want to introduce you to upcoming artist cimone and her brand new single titled “pink clouding”.
cimone, a Canadian-born artist, delivers a lush, bold, and spiritual sound with a strikingly vulnerable narrative. She attributes her unique sound to the rich cultural upbringing she experienced as a first-generation North American raised in a South Asian home.
A song about pretending to be okay, “pink clouding” infuses traditional Pakistani-Sufi stylings with contemporary R&B production, providing the perfect canvas for the introspective lyrics that reflect cimone’s own journey with self-identity.
Finishing this song at 4:00am in the midst of a panic attack, cimone remembers feeling lost with who she was; a result of running away from her issues. Like straining to see through cracked rose-coloured glasses, “pink clouding” narrates the breaking point caused by bottling up emotions and ignoring unhealed scars.
