This song kicks off by dropping on us some amazing reverberating bass. The masterful use of reverb permeates throughout the melody. Evocative lyrics seem to prepare us for a ride of passion. And indeed, the drum machine powers on soon after. Dance your eardrums!
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.
This song is a wonderful advocate for the ground-breaking sound that can be crafted when artists take their audio alchemy to the next level. Alongside the innocent guitar, dry samples yearn for Anomie’s dreamy voice like the desert yearns for water.
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.
Thirsty for your imagination, a whirlwind of percussion and crispy sound textures brings her voice from the cusp of an ocean storm. Listen carefully and get lost deep within the intricacies of a world-class electronic orchestra. And don’t feel too bad when it drops you out just when you want more.
Mysterious and epic, this tune is a transporter to other worlds. Transporter Songs aren’t easy to build. First of all, it takes a special kind of wind to move our soul’s sails. Mystic incantations can save us from the storm, but it’s Lori’s voice that fills the soul’s ethereal sails. Now, we’re prepared for the oceanic union underneath the guiding celestial bodies.
“Will my feet touch solid ground again?”
There’s no journey without waves, no life without vibration. The melody’s pulse is always with us – the patterned avatar of ocean waves. But just like getting lost at sea, a storm is in the making…
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.
What happens when sweet verses meet a vulnerable, honest voice to bless their words and a sprawling, effervescent electronic orchestration? The result is a tune that is absolutely… nutritious. The words are food for thought and the crunchy sound textures are like a shower for the eardrum.
When you’re in search for beautiful vocals coupled with a strong and evocative voice, look no further than Delerium. One day, I’d like to dance this song together with you. Yes, with you, You!
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.
Leave it to Hybrid to turn an already good song (by Depeche Mode) into a mixture of lush, rich sound with a convincing buildup and a beautiful detour that leads to a sparkling climax. This is a hybrid made up of all the goodness of electronica and the richness of the human voice. Oh, and it’s anything but silent, of course :).
