“For Whom Doth the Light Turn?” is a sad RnB/ Rap track about the struggles of arguing and fighting with someone you love. Having to choose between keeping the fight going for the sake of pride or putting ego aside to grow together shares Laylines’ Caleb Gatling.


Michigan project Laylines is here to help you escape from the grit and monotony of day to day life.

With a series of gripping singles, the project of Caleb Gatling has cast a thought-provoking and dexterous soundscape; molding intimate hip-hop vibes, technically astute guitar riffs and a deft juxtaposition of heavy and melodic.

Watch Laylines’ new music video for “Our Glass View ft. Cerulean Panda and Andrés”.

Recent singles such as “Entrance Made”, “Lucid Dreams” and a thunderous cover of Carrie Underwood hit single “Before He Cheats” have highlighted Laylines’ multi-faceted expression of modern alternative, as the project re-imagines the breadth of possibilities for marrying metal and RnB.

On new track “For Whom Doth the Light Turn?”, Gatling teams with producer Rian Cunningham and Glo, for a heart-on-sleeve rap/emo hybrid, deftly infused with RnB vibes.
