Catchy hooks and a wavy bassline do a great job of delivering this melody’s passionate vocals. Reverb plays an important role here, and is used with great skill both on the vocals and for building some monolithic bass constructions towards the end of the song.
The melody starts with a sort of riffing that is so flawless during its repetition that it feels like synthesizers are at work. But the “techno-metal” part of the melody is soon a distant memory, as waves upon waves of other robotic creations join in the song. And then, the mechanical riffing only serves as a contrast for the layers of reverbed instruments and echoing singers (male and female).
Despite the slightly dark mood it could sometimes suggest, I find this song to be incredibly hopeful and motivating. This is not only because of Kristy’s fantastic voice, but also because of the beautiful lyrics.
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.
