The delicate track, which is available for download and streaming on digital platforms worldwide, combines his smooth-spoken voice with a calm beat.

Written and produced by glibs, “Soft Spot” opens with a wall of instrumentals and effortlessly flows into welcoming vocals. Immediately, a loud whistle trickles into a steady beat with relaxing melodies.

When I let myself fall in love with someone, there’s nothing stopping that. So when love hits a wall, I’m going to crash.” glibs brilliantly infuses his songwriting into a lo-fi beat that allows listeners to feel the emotions laid out in the lyrics. He’s mastered the ability to draw an audience in with relatable feelings of unrequited love.
