Case Arnold – “Psychonaut”

blame it on Patrick Glynn October 5, 2016

Case Arnold is dropping his new project, SO(U)L Theory — his first project in nearly three years and first since garnering any sort of buzz out of Clarksville, Tennessee — by the end of the month.

“The overall theme on SO(U)L Theory is remaining yourself through the good and the bad,” he told Pigeons & Planes, who premiered the song, about his next project. “Dealing with issues in my past with drugs, losing close friends to drugs, and bouncing from place to place really took a toll on me and my spirit. Making it out of that place is what really inspired SO(U)L Theory.”

Where his last single, “Love Found,” focused on how Case’s relationship with hip-hop, “Psychonaut” takes a turn for the darker as he broadens the scope of drugs taking a toll on his entire lifestyle.

The song tells the story of Case dropping some LSD on his tongue alongside a woman and embarking on a “helluva night” with her, but there’s an eeriness set over the self-produced tune as the distorted and screeching guitars pierce Case’s words.
