Tritonal released their third studio album earlier this year in the form the 19-track U&ME. Although the body of work is extensive, they are already back with another single with Henry Dark titled “Shivohum.”
The single opens with a bassline that propels the track forward, infused with big room accents that heighten the build. Sanskrit and Hindi vocals break through the electronic notes, transporting the listener to an ancient world. The lyrics were written by Tritonal themselves, and when translated, the message of the song highlights the power and spirituality of meditation and yoga.
The original Sanskrit translates to “guide me from ignorance to truth, guide me from darkness to light. Creator, Preserver, and destroyer (of material existence). I am that (pure consciousness), I am that, inner self.”
Chad Cisneros of Tritonal speaks on the song in an official release, saying, “Mantra and meditation have become cornerstones on which a new spiritual paradigm has taken form in my life. I wanted to point towards the inner stillness I feel during mediation in a track, and Sanskrit was a great tool for this. Shout out to my Indian manager Amit for the guidance!”
