Ohio-based lo-fi bedroom artist cardnl is a very sad boy who creates sorrowful songs of heartbreak in his basement studio.

His name is Troy.

One of his latest tracks "brown" off his EP two demos is another heartbreaker. If you're into somber lofi acoustic stuff then this jam is most definitely for you.

Unrequited love and the temporary nature of this strange and short life seems to be the subject matter of this song of despair. It's absolutely depressing.
