The first thing that stands out on this track is Susanne’s amazing voice. The instrumental is subdued and makes a lot of room for her to unfold. And unfold she does, showing magnificent strength and range. But don’t worry, there’s much more that this song has to offer besides the convincing vocal performance (which is among the best I’ve heard in years).
Synth veils will soon join the singer and lead us into the lively portion of the melody. It’s not long until we’re treated with a beautiful orchestral arrangement. My only gripe with the composition is the ending, which is not in such a good harmony with the rest of the melody.
The live performance is beautiful in its own right and I highly recommend watching it.
“let the stars be my eyes then
unchain the knuckles and latches
unbutton my wrists.
My skin so thin you can see black holes within
My eyes so clear they light up the sky
And sometimes I’ll bend into the silicone veil
And enter this world again as a ghost
Beauty is poisonous
Oh, heaven must be an iron rose
