Despite the rock-solid beat, this piece is all about atmosphere, distortions, samples and clever orchestration. And despite all the bad news that the song brings, ears couldn’t be happier with such an action-packed ride.
De’licious is the first word that comes to my mind as I try to review this fabulous song. It’s a passionate feast of crescendo orchestration transporting a solemn voice. And isn’t it just awesome when great music comes with a great video too?
It’s one of the most beautiful creations I’ve had the pleasure of witnessing in 2018.
Here’s a marvelous acoustic gem, sparkling with elegance and mystery. It’s a collaboration between one of the world’s most talented guitarists and a charming voice. The perfect soundtrack for a deserted early morning commute or a late misty evening walk.
Playful happy music at its best, here’s an honest and empowering vibe celebration. Jolly voices, funky dancing and catchy hooks. Dixit!
I dedicate this beautiful, hopeful song, to all people who have lost something only to realize, later on, that what they had lost ultimately led them to life-changing, wonderful realizations. It’s one of Delerium’s most touching works.
Besides music from a duo that counts itself among the best chillout/electropop musicians, we also get to go on a moving and inspiring lyrical journey. The melody shines through its masterful use of contrast as the orchestration swings between two worlds.
The lyrics are impactful and they are vibrated into existence in a solemn way. Despite the heavy riffing involved, I consider this to be an atmospheric song, a powerful invocation coming from an occult Universe.
Darker and grittier than an old floppy disk drive rotting in some secret agency’s basement, this is one weird bastard. Samples, blitz-rhythms, incursions into other dimensions, it’s all here. This is the soundtrack alien straightjackets boogie to.
Delicate orchestration, a beautiful sense of depth and an ominous story-teller give this song an aura of ancient forest magic. The darkness in one voice is opposed by airy choirs and dreamy instruments. The song may be called “dark depths”, but all I feel is light.
Psybient is a Journey Genre. This means that most psybient songs are Transporters. Where (and when) they Transport you is mostly up to your own imagination and experience. This song has all the hallmarks of an excellent Transporter: incantations, choirs, a wide array of playful instruments, multiple sound planes, a diverse, inspired orchestration and, of course, awesome rhythms and bass.
A dreamy, ritualistic creation that will transport awareness far and off on the wings of the beautiful, evocative voice wielding the keys to the portals of our imagination. Such Journey Songs are a testament to the power of sound.
Besides the excellent production values featured in this tune, I stand in awe at the magnificent fusion between electronic instruments and traditional ones. I was, am and will always be overjoyed by the way technology has increased the sound range that artists can use. Unlike others, artists can be trusted to use technology responsibly and respectfully.
