- Losing My Mind Rofi James 03:05
Rofi James is set to release their new single titled ‘Losing My Mind’ this Friday (January 26th). Having been birthed from the lock down and the isolation that resulted from the COVID Pandemic, Rofi James lends an ear of sympathy and a song of musical gesture that relates to everyone that has gone through the agony of lonliness.
Soft and sweet yet assertive and rough around the sonic edges, Rofi James gives a signature sound to that part of the heart we never discuss but always acknowledge.
About Rofi James
Following the success of their Hard-hitting, anthemic, sincere and honest fist in the air anthem ‘Berlin Wall’, Rofi James’ returns with a brand new track ‘Losing My Mind’. Written during the initial lockdown in Ireland during the Covid 19 pandemic, the vibe is dark and moody conveying an inherent desire to get away from it all and escape the mundane.
The song written by Ronan Flaherty, Jamie Colleran, Joseph Flaherty and Dave Skelton, and was mixed and produced by Dave Skelton, before UK executive producer Catherine Cunning(neuroscience in music & sound design specialist in music production, film and TV)
came on board to add a neurosonic vibe to the mix bringing on board one of the UK’s leading mastering engineers, Tim Turan, Turan Audio Oxford (U2, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Toto, Van Halen). In the band’s own words “Losing my mind is a song about hitting your breaking point, it explores the spectrum of emotions experienced when you’ve hit rock bottom. From moments of self critique and claustrophobia “I’ve been told I was cold when you needed me”, “feeling like hell, stuck in a cell”, “I have become my own worst enemy”. The song explores the mindset during deep isolation, and the negative effects it can have on a person. It also explores the potential for a positive outcome, overcoming these dark times “won’t you walk with me, we’ve got more to see”.
