    Blake Ratliffe – “Out of My Mind”
    Published: January 23, 2023

    Blake Ratliffe dropped a new single, “Out of My Mind,” on Friday. It’s a delightful new release from the musician, whose last track was 2021’s “Diamond, Ruby & Sapphire.”

    The song feels atmospheric in a 70s/80s, new wave, movie montage sort of way, with sweeping synth, pulsating bass, and plucky drum kicks. Playful guitar trickles in as Ratliffe’s vocals shine with crisp, sun-soaked pop breeze. 

    Lyrically, “Out of My Mind” skews both dissociative and hopeful, detailing the unsettling feeling of not recognizing yourself for a moment: “So won’t you tell me / Who’s that boy in my dreams.”

    “Now, as I get older, I realize you have to be careful not to grow cold toward those dreams and visions you once had – but continue the pursuit. This song is an ode to all of our dreams and ambitions, and not letting your true self down,” Ratliffe said on an ">Instagram post announcing the song.

    “Out of My Mind” is both conceptually contemplative and a total treat for the ears. Stream the track below.
