Troubled Mind has the sense of a rodeo. Soul Zimon & His Kozmic Combinations’ deep Americana composition has a definite Western vibe to it, nearly fitting nicely as the background score for a climax scene in an old school desert shootout. You can experience the loneliness in the arrangement, not as a result of any particular relationship-related isolation, but as a result of being lost and alone in a huge countryside or desert. As the title suggests, Troubled Mind is about being perplexed, conflicted, and unclear of what the best course of action is.
The song is about someone who has been left behind, perceives himself as complex, lives in a state of confusion, but has discovered someone or something new that has left him unclear of how to proceed. The continual echo of ‘I don’t know what to do’ as the backing arrangement rises and begins to construct a picture of a barren landscape creates such a wonderfully magnificent cinematic to take in.
Soul Zimon & His Kozmic Combinations are based in Oslo, Norway and Gothenburg, Sweden. His music will transport you to a world of rustic roots and boots.
