Wisdom finds all sorts of ways to trickle through society. Albeit soothing and dreamy, this song’s slow rhythm is full of intent. The singer’s soft voice is precisely what these words of awakening need to be carried on.
Sweetness drips from every vibration of this delicate gem of a song. It’s a soul-healing lullaby blessed with a beautiful, gentle voice and a sacred atmosphere.
As a bonus, the cover of the EP this melody is from is a perfect match for such art.
Contrasting dark-neon undertones with Kristy Thirsk’s angelic vocals, this passionate song’s lyrics are brimming with meanings just waiting to be explored. If acidic, electrifying love would have a sound, this would be it. It’s a sinuous song, bestowed with bountiful, sweeping waves of deep digital sound.
“What’s up, song?”
“Well, you know, thumping along, building some awesome atmosphere, adding a trumpet here, a voice there.”
“I like what I’m hearing! Wanna hang out?”
“Sure, just get some good listening gear, ayt?”
You’ve just landed on planet chill. Welcome. Now close your eyes.
This is as much a song as it is an experience. Of course, everything we live is an experience. But there is a range of intensity to every experience, and a range of senses to be involved in it. This piece shows music at its best as an experience enhancer.
Let your eardrums be massaged by soft percussion as your consciousness floats on gentle winds of sound.
This is when the ineffable comes on as sound, as echoes from an abyss where technology has finally fused with spirituality in a mystic dance that cannot yet be imagined. Sometimes an artist manages to travel back in time, reaching that future from where little can be brought back other than these snaking synths, creeping choirs, monolithic bass lines and the lost electronic voices of ascending civilizations.
Slow down, lay back and close your eyes. Let yourself be moved by the soft yet willful vibrations brought to you by the beautiful composition of Greek mastermind, MIKTEK. This is for those evenings spent sunken in a comfy couch or armchair, eardrums spellbound by the caress of musical magic.
You can listen to the melody for free, in good quality, on BandCamp, which is one of the best websites when it comes to supporting artists. You can also purchase the song (or album) from this same location. And in case you’re wondering, yes, I did purchase MIKTEK’s album :).
Get some good head gear, lie down, close your eyes and let this one take you places. This is the symbiosis between technology, mind and soul. Despite the relatively alert rhythm, the deep frequencies are so good at doing their brain-massage thing that this song never fails to send me into a state of inspired calm.
The dance of airwaves inside our ears is one of the joys of being sensorial creatures. And this one is as sensual as songs can get. Wrap yourself in the passionate whispers of this mysterious duet. Let the suggestive guitars and synths drag you inside a den of audio pleasure.
It was very tempting to start with “I liked it, I liked it a lot”, but I think this is a better place for the predictable line.
Prepare to sink in, to take off, to slow down towards a climax speeding straight at your heart. The molten rock core vibe carries an angel’s voice. Wavy planes of sound spiral around the thumping bass pillar while playful happenings wander here and there. The storm of butterflies dances to the magical flutes. Shine your consciousness within this vibrating cathedral.
It’s one of those songs that made me contact the artist and thank him for creating such music; a short celebration of life, of thankfulness towards being able to perceive and appreciate art. And a winner of my Song of the Year prize!
