The Bergamot share an emotional heartfelt single and music video on World Suicide Prevention Day, “Bones.”
The opening lines of the track are the first words “Bones” writer Nathaniel Paul said to his brother after he checked out of rehab for the second time. Three months after his brother’s suicide attempt, they sat on the banks of Lake Michigan and listened to “Bones.”
“I want to send this song to all my friends at rehab,” his brother said with tears running down his face.
The track is calm and reassuring. Its simplistic pads, distance with varying reverbs, arpeggios, and stunning guitar plucks move truly solidify the true beauty that The Bergamot have encompassed. Additionally, “Bones” is easy to follow as it leads you through a journey of self-fulfillment, reassurance, and peace of mind. Allow your mind to rest easy and absorb the light that is encapsulated within your bones.
According to Kirsten Weir of the American Psychological Association, “Suicide rates have increased 33-percent from 1999 to 2017.”
